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!
