  • Please consider minimising the impact of introduced weeds and plants on Dthinna Dthinnawan National Park by feeding horses a weed-free diet for 2 to 4 days prior to any extended trip to reduce the risk of seeds being spread through manure.

Horse riders can enjoy over 70km of long distance endurance trails and short loops through the national park’s gently undulating wilderness. Whatever you choose, you’re sure to experience a rare sense of remoteness and solitude here.

Starting from Inverary Homestead, the trails are most popular in autumn and winter. In summer you’ll relish the rich orange–coloured trunks of the smooth–barked apple trees shedding their bark. Work up a canter through the magnificent forests of ironbark and cypress pine – there’s bound to be log or two to jump along the way.

There are plenty of scenic spots to enjoy a leisurely picnic while you rest your horses. Or you can ride into nearby Yetman for a pub lunch and a drink at the Codfish Hotel. Along the way, keep an eye out for kangaroos, wallabies, woodland birds and mobs of emus running across the plains.
