The treks start and finish at "Homestead Chalet", a spacious, traditional Australian homestead located on a working cattle property situated close to Kosciuskco National Park, in the Snowy Mountains of NSW. Homestead Chalet is about 20 minutes driving south of Jindabyne (we will send you a map with directions). Experienced guides take riders along bush trails, old stock routes, fire and brumby trails, winding through forests of majestic snow gums and mountain ash.

Canter along the open plains surrounded by impressive mountains in their blue haze, then, wind your way through the bush on tracks used by the brumbies. An average distance of approximately 30 km a day is covered.
