To really explore the natural wonders of the Daintree's Cape Tribulation and enjoy an exciting adventure, this two hour afternoon horse riding tour is the way to do it. Set out from the stables with your guide, group, and very own horse, to spend the afternoon winding through rainforest, sandy beach, ocean waters and stunning open paddocks.
You’ll weave through the oldest rainforest in the world and breathe fresh salty air along the shoreline of Myall Beach, where you can literally get your feet wet. You can ride right into the water and splash your way across the beach. How big a splash you want to make is up to you, what speed you’re comfortable with, your skill-level, and how wet you’re willing to get. But be open to getting a little salty at any speed in the water - it’s definitely worth it.
Seeing as Australia is known for its animal predators almost as much as it’s known for its natural beauty, it’s understandable you might have some questions about wading into the Daintree waters. But rest assured, you (and your horse) will be kept safe and sound. Your guide will only take you horse riding into the ocean shallows if there’s clear visibility in the water, and the shore area is actually sheltered by a protective reef. So you can breathe easy as you make your way through the crystal blue waters of Cape Tribulation.
There will be plenty of opportunities to capture some picture-perfect moments throughout the morning, so you can have a memento of the gorgeous Daintree landscapes and your time as a horseback riding pro.
