Ride in a Horse-drawn Carriage
in Surfers Paradise
Take a horse-drawn carriage ride through the streets of Surfers Paradise and become part of a much loved tourist attraction.
When dreaming of a jaunt in a horse-drawn carriage, romantics of the world wouldn't necessarily picture it taking place in a busy seaside tourist destination ...
However, it's a wonderful way to enjoy the sights of Surfers Paradise!
You'll make your way along the beach esplanade at a leisurely pace, enjoying the balmy summer sea breeze, the gentle swaying of the carriage and the unmistakable sound of horses at work ...
the rhythmic clip-clop of hooves striking bitumen; a gentle whinny or soft swish of tail; straps and buckles jingling brightly.
It's something you see often in the movies but rarely get the chance to experience ... so don't miss your opportunity to do it while holidaying in Surfers Paradise.
Evening horse-drawn carriage rides operate on beach esplanades around Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach during warmer months of the year.
Bookings are not required - simply wait at a designated area for the carriage to arrive.
Or, if you're planning a visit to Tamborine Mountain, a carriage ride is a delightful way to take in the splendid scenery.
And if you'd like to add a touch of romance for that special someone, champagne and finger food can be arranged.
If it's fun you're after, large groups can be accommodated in a waggonette.
Imagine the delight all round when you surprise your family or friends with such a novel treat!
