Overview

We offer a unique and amazing experience with a variety of different horse ride adventures to choose from. Our beach ride is very popular, as it is set in one on the most beautiful beaches you will ever visit, pristine sands with crystal clear waters and brilliant blue skies. Rainbow Beach is called Australia’s Nature Coast and it is easy to see why. The bush land, native animals and coloured sands is why Rainbow Beach is often listed in travel guides as a must visit for anyone going to QLD. We are proud to show you the area in the best possible way. Our gentle horses are fun loving, sweet natured and always happy to meet new people. Our rides include, beach rides, swimming rides, yes, we take both you and the horse into the water they love it and so do our guests. We also have full moon rides, multi day rides and country rides. Andrew McCarthy owns a beautiful piece of land at Goomboorian, which is located half way between Gympie and Rainbow Beach. He offers a scenic ride through lush green hills, natural waterholes and spectacular views of this area. The native animals are accustomed to his presence so they are not shy and often come out to view the visitors. We also offer personalised rides for special occasions. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings or any special event you would like to make a truly memorable one. We have witnessed many marriage proposals and been privileged to be part of numerous weddings. Picnics on the beach are popular in autumn and winter when the water maybe too cool for a swim. Whatever you have in mind we will work with you to make it happen. Rainbow Beach Horse Rides cater for all levels of riding abilities from absolute beginners through to experienced riders. We take photos on every ride, which are available to all guests free of charge at the end of the ride. Age and Weight Guidelines - For the safety of our horses and customers we follow the industry standard of a 95kg weight limit and an age limit of 10 years and over. For those under 10 without extensive riding experience, we can arrange private or led rides to cater to the individual’s needs. Location: Rainbow Beach is approximately 3 hours north of Brisbane and 90 minutes north of the Sunshine Coast. The closet airport is Sunshine Coast or if you are flying international then Brisbane. A shuttle service is available from both airports to Rainbow Beach. Rainbow Beach has an abundance of accommodation to suit every style and budget. From backpackers through to 5 Star Resorts and self-contained beach houses. We are happy to recommend places according to your needs. Andrew and the team would love you to join us for a spectacular riding experience. We are here to help with any questions you may have and believe in giving personal service, so please feel free to contact us.
