Tait's Wongabel Stables

in conjunction with  WILDERNESS EXPEDITIONS     present.......




Spend a week in peaceful bush surroundings.

Camp beside quiet rivers while an expert cook prepares all your meals. Travel  in the footsteps of the pioneers. See the wild mountain country where they discovered and mined tin. Wonder at the spirit of the early explorers as you come upon spectacular views.


Meet your fellow riders early in the morning. Get to know your horse as you take a shorter ride to the first camp. Learn how to secure your horse at night. Set up your camp while your cook prepares your first camp meal.
