Accommodations for Comboyne Plateau and Beach Ride

This is a stationary ride, so all nights are spent at the same location.

This trip is based at the 60 acres horse riding property, in the Lorne Valley between Taree and Port Macquarie on the Mid North Coast NSW Australia. The main lodge has beautiful, wide verandas which overlook the magnificent garden filled with native plants and trees, the large horse paddocks where the animals graze, and the saltwater swimming pool (open October-April); beyond is the lush forest valley of the Camden Haven region of Port Macquarie hinterland on the Australian NSW east coast. The lodge also has a large communal entertainment area for guests to sit together to enjoy meals and drinks in a family style atmosphere. Sometimes, riders may have to share bathroom if the trip is fully booked with single rooms.
WIFI is available. Laundry is not available.

Depending on the water reserves some exceptions for washing clothes can be made for international guests that are traveling for a longer period - please make requests when booking.
