The Bush Shindig Ride

shindig (for the non Aussies, here’s the meaning of a Shindig!)
  1. a lively party, especially one celebrating something.
    (what are we celebrating at Bellrowan? Getting away from it all, friends, horses, good music and the wonderful Aussie Bush!)

Whether you have never even been near a horse or have spent your life around them, Bellrowan’s Bush Shindig is the complete experience. (for those that have done our Chicks in the Sticks, the Shindig is similar but with more riding and it’s great for couples and a group of your friends!)

Bellrowan’s rustic Bush Inn is designed on a bush pub 150 years ago in the Aussie Bush! You couldn’t ask for a better shed for a Shindig!

Arrive at midday on the first day, spend some time with your horse and receive a tuition before heading out on a 3 hour ride through Bellrowan Valley, from Bellrowan Valley’s homestead we ride through  rainforest pockets, native bushland and rolling pasture and on to one of two mountain top lookouts. At the halfway point the camp fire is burning with a cup of billy tea on the

boil and fresh damper to warm your insides. (campfire on the 2nd day’s ride)

Enjoy a great dinner served by the campfire after mastering the Aussie Stock Whip and learn the art of fire twirling! After dinner be entertained by one of our local singer artists.

Whenever you are ready to retire for the night roll into your comfy bed in our Stockman’s Cabin or large canvas tents.

After a big night everyone is grateful that we have a late start, and big breakfast to give you the steel for the day two 2 hour ride. On your return to Bellrowan Valley’s homestead a delicious BBQ spread awaits you.

You can decide to extend your stay at Bellrowan Valley. As many riders have said, “it’s so hard to leave!”, so you may want to have an extra day up your sleeve when you come to visit!

“Enjoy a real rustic experience without roughing it!”
