Destination Daintree

Cape Tribulation Horse Rides

Experience the unrivalled beauty of Cape Tribulation like a true explorer with a guided horse riding tour. 

A locally owned and run tour operator, Cape Trib Horse Rides offers the only beach horseback riding experience in Cape Tribulation. In operation since 1981, sustainability is at the heart of Cape Trib Horse Rides and as such the company is dedicated to providing a unique and enriching travel experience. No previous experience is necessary, and our expert guides can cater to all levels from those who have never been on horseback before up to experienced riders.

After saddling up, learning the basics and being paired with a horse suited to your ability level, you will depart the stables and follow your guide through the majestic Daintree Rainforest. Discover an abundance of local flora and fauna as you weave through the rainforest and across several creek crossings on your way to Myall Beach. Once there you will explore the beautiful stretch of golden sand and have the opportunity to walk your horse into the shallow waters of the ocean (clarity permitting). Take a minute to soak in this incredible moment and look at the juxtaposing landscapes that surround you. You will be given a dry bag for your camera at the commencement of your tour so you can capture that Insta-worthy shot! 

Tours are run twice daily from Tuesday – Sunday with the Morning Beach Ride departing at 8 am and the Mid Morning Beach Ride departing at 11 am. A complimentary pick up from accommodation in Cape Tribulation can be organised at the time of booking. 

Cape Trib Horse Rides provides a selection of helmets, boots, dry bags and wet weather jackets. All riders are required to wear closed in shoes, long pants and long-sleeved shirts.
