A horse drawn carriage ride is the perfect way to enjoy the beauty of the Macedon Ranges in Victoria, Australia.
Let time slow down while you sit back in comfort and relax to the meditative sounds of hoof beats and the sounds of the Australian countryside. Perhaps stop for a classic old-world picnic?
Now retired I am combining my love of vintage fashions, slow living, picnicking and horses in this micro business located near Woodend.
The high elevation of the Macedon Ranges (526m and up) provides glorious views across rolling pasture land, bush and forest land and geological wonders including Hanging Rock, Mount Macedon, Camel's Hump and the Jim Jims.
While elevation is high and the views magnificent, the roads are largely flat making them ideal for horse drawn vehicles.
I have an authentic 1890s 'canoe front buggy wagonette' - of the 'Picnic at Hanging Rock' era - and a larger wagon with canopy which seats up to 6 average size adult passengers. All seats have back rests and are padded for comfort. The larger wagon is very easy to enter with two low steps and hand rails, while the buggy requires a large step up.
Children are most welcome and will love the experience of having horse Patrick take them for a ride. Afterwards they can thank Patrick with a carrot.
Well behaved dogs on leads are also welcome to come along for a ride - they love it!
Drives range from 60 minute sightseeing trips to longer scenic rides and picnics, up to half day (4 hour) winery or garden picnic drives. Prices start at $150 for a one hour trip for up to 6 people - with cost being per hour (not per person).
Drives can be varied to suit your needs.
Food and drink can be taken on drives or I can provide a picnic hamper for additional cost which is about $30 per person.
Please contact me for a list of rides and prices.
At no extra cost I can provide picnic bling and windup gramophone on picnic drives. These look fabulous in photos and add a touch of history and romance to your outing.
Horse and carriages are also available for local weddings, photo shoots and promotions.
If you would like to learn to drive a horse yourself I can provide this experience too. Please ask for details.
We are located 60 minutes north of Melbourne with train access to Woodend or Kyneton from the city or Bendigo. Transfers may be able to be arranged
Perhaps you would like to give this experience to someone as a gift? Gift Vouchers are available.
