See Noosa’s wild side…

…exploring on horseback

Noosa’s beautiful beaches are often known as the main attraction, but when many tourists arrive, they discover the majestic hinterland, and often come back again and again for the memories and serenity of this stunning area. Why not explore it on horseback, viewing the lakes, rolling hills and national park all from a new, more adventurous vantage point? Several local businesses offer horseback riding classes and adventures, whether you are looking for a romantic carriage, stunning wedding photos, or just an adventurous family getaway in the hinterlands. Rest assured, there are options for almost all skill levels.

Noosa Horses offers carriage rides as well as horse rides for intermediate to advanced levels. Tours are held in a number of areas, including beach rides on Noosa’s North Shore, and trail rides in the pine forest and native bushland. For more information, visit or phone Patrick on 0437 916 928.

Noosa Horse Riding also offers rides for those 8 years of age or older, and riding tours near the beautiful Lake Weyba and the hinterland. Advanced booking is often necessary, for more information on how to book these stunning tours visit

Eqauthon, led by triple Olympian, Alex Watson, offers a wide range of tours and experiences as well. The company offers private rides on the beach including overnight escapes, 7 day luxury bush and beach rides, as well as classes for those looking to improve their riding skills.

After a day in the wilderness, Noosa Quays is a great place for the ultimate relaxation experience. Just a short stroll away from the award winning, elegant restaurants and shopping on Hastings Street, the resort is tucked away among its own tropical gardens and private beach, and even has a sauna for relaxation. Oversized balconies are all, except poolside, directly waterfront, so you can relax with wine while watching sunsets over the spectacular Noosa Sound, all while being moments from koalas, exotic birdlife and the famous Noosa National Park.
