Bogong Horseback Adventures, Tawonga, VIC

If you haven't taken a trip to the Victorian High Country in late Autumn, you have no idea what you're missing! The place is absolutely stunning with the most incredible colours on display and boy did we luck out with the most stunning sunshine for our trip to Mount Bogong.

For my birthday this year, we skipped the urban pub cheers and found the most incredible family-owned horseback trail ride adventure at the base of Mount Bogong, just east of Bright, and it was absolute bliss.

Bogong Horseback Adventures has been owned and operated by husband & wife duo, Steve & Kath, for the past 30 years and they run the most special adventures of 5 day horseback treks through the Victorian High Country and half & full day trail rides up Mount Bogong.

Their horses have been bred and so beautifully trained on the property specifically for these adventure purposes and they just ooze discipline & love. As an amateur, I had complete trust in my beautiful horse, Delta, and the guides are incredible.

Our 4 hour half day ride finished with the most beautiful long table lunch whipped up by the family and as we grazed on stuffed Middle Eastern eggplant, fresh salad, homemade hummus & dessert, Kath shared the family story that inspires a whole new meaning to quality of life.

Stay overnight in one of their beautiful cabins to top of a truly perfect green weekend.

Green Weekender rating: 10/10 (bliss!)
