Bogong Horseback Adventures has been running award winning tours for 27 years. With licensed access to the Alpine National Park and Mount Bogong, the riding landscape is truly spectacular.

Based at out Spring Spur Stables, Bogong Horseback Adventures travel from rich mountain valleys to the vast Bogong High Plains and Victoria's highest mountain, Mount Bogong. The award winning tours combine, great food and wine, fantastic mountain bred horses and friendly, experienced staff.

With a range of tours from three days to seven days, Bogong Horseback Adventures can cater for riders of all levels of experience. Taking care to match horse and rider, we offer tuition to those who desire.

The Spring Spur stables, nestled below Victoria's highest mountain, are an ideal starting point to experience the best the High Country has to offer. The Bogong area of the Alpine National Park features the seven highest peaks in Victoria, vast rolling High Plains, dozens of historic huts, mobs of brumbies, fast flowing mountain rivers, spectacular displays of wildflowers, old goldmines and a network of mining and cattle tracks cut into mountain sides over 100 years ago.

The best way to experience this vast area, most of it inaccessible to four wheel drive, is to join one of the Packhorse supported tours. Continuing an unbroken tradition dating back to the 1860's, the team can take you on the journey of a lifetime.

Breeding and training Australian Stock Horses, Bogong Horseback Adventures have a program of clinics and workshops in Australian Horsemanship, offering insights into the traditions of mountain horse lore, natural horsemanship and the skills of bush riding, camping with horses and using packhorses.

Offering two hour, half day and full day rides in the Alpine Park from the Tawonga stables.
