Day 2: We enjoy a hearty country breakfast before we set off for “Kate Camerons Peak” where we see the perilously steep hill where the famous jump scene from the movie was filmed and down to the farm for lunch to complete our ride.
Have been on rides with Mike and his team multiple times, and also on other trail rides in Victoria. This is truly one of the best! Besides the scenery, well looked after horses and training provided, the best part is their professionalism and excellent customer service and true Aussie hospitality. Truly an award winning tourism operator. We always recommend friends and relatives visiting the Mansfield region to have this on their to-do list!http://www.tripadvisor.com.au
