What to expect

Cattle Droving by Day

  • You will be riding as part of a real cattle drive with experienced Outback drovers who will guide you along this well worn route.
  • The full cattle drive takes 13 days and you will select a package which will allow you to experience a section of this ride ranging from 4 to 5 days each.
  • Your average daily rides will range between 10 and 18 kms per day, so be prepared for some tender spots! If you find you are getting a little ‘saddle sore,’ you can have a turn riding in the “chuck wagon.”
  • Horses are suited to the rider and will be changed regularly as horses need to be spelled (rested).
  • A ride orientation will be provided and beginners will learn how to saddle and care for their horse on the ride.

Meals

  • All meals (breakfast, morning smoko, lunch, afternoon smoko and evening meal) on the drive are provided.
  • Lunch is provided from the back of the “chuck” wagon and smokos are taken at suitable stops along the drive.
  • Breakfast and dinner will be at the campsite.

  • Mobile phone coverage ranges between limited and non-existent and there is no facility for recharging phones on the drive. A back up battery is recommended.
  • Each campsite will be equipped with an emergency satellite phone.
  • All campsite meals are prepared and served by our qualified cooks.
