Packers High Country Horse Riding offers short rides for one and a half hour, two hours, half day and day as well as the extended tours.
All rides are set in a remote part of the high country. Tracks are through both farmland and bush that is open and thick, follow along rivers and go up and over mountainous terrain with a few stunning secret scenery locations.
Try a half day ride from Packers to the Blue Duck Inn on the Cobungra river. Set off in the morning riding alongside the Bundarrah River, cross it a few times before taking a well used bush track to the pub set in the middle of nowhere!
Depending on the standard of riders, there are areas for a quick canter. Most of the riding is done at a leisurely pace, taking in the scenery and being out bush.

Tour starting location
Packers High Country Horse Riding
Packers High Country Horse Riding is situated in the remote Bundarrah Valley, of the Omeo High Country region, a small area of farmland is surrounded by National parks and forests.
Hourly to multi-day rides are a true wilderness experience. Once out the gate, you are crossing rivers and riding along narrow bush tracks. Treks are on offer for all standards and ages of riders and tailor made to suit.
Longer rides through the Alpine National Parks might take in the historic Glen Wills, remote Cobungra river valleys and the vast Bogong High Plains, a viewing platform for Victoria's highest mountains.
Treks follow along routes that were once used by Aborigines who showed early explorers, goldminers and cattlemen the way through the mountains. You seldom see others except for the group you ride with. Enjoy a great picnic lunch out bush then at night settle around the campfire, telling tall tales and listening to the sounds of the bush as a memorable camp oven dinner is cooked for you.
A favourite half day ride is one that leads to the Blue Duck Inn, alongside the Cobungra River. A ride through the bush then a sip at the pub, and a shorter trek home, whatever the weather.
Two comfortable rustic bush huts are also available to those wanting a break away somewhere more remote. They are self-contained or catered, it is entirely up to you. Also available for riders, and non-riders, is The Willows, lodge style accommodation.
