Searching for fun things to do in Cairns that involve outdoor adventure? 10 minutes North of Cairns you can find Blazing Saddles, a horse riding and ATV (quad bike) tour company that caters for even the most fussiest of nature buffs.
Locally owned and operated, Blazing Saddles is located on a massive property on a working sugar cane farm, so the location is of a substantial size. In fact, it’s so big it even has an 18 acre billabong, so you can rest assured, there’s plenty of space to ride and an abundance of wildlife as your travels take you through sugar cane, native bush, mangrove wetlands and rainforest pockets.
When it comes to horse riding, the super friendly staff will cater for your experience levels, with a large variety of horses to suit beginner to advanced levels. Ride around the cane fields and bush settings and take in the ambience and calm on horseback. Horse riding at Blazing Saddles is one of our highly recommended things to do in cairns with kids, especially for those children that are first timers. The kids just absolutely love it.
Feel like a faster pace or a racier adventure? You can also hire quad bikes and ride around the property. Get some mates together and explore the property in style! We especially love it when there’s a bit of mud after some rain. Super messy and super fun. Quad bikes come in 90cc and 250cc, so the kiddies can also have a go in a safe and controlled setting.
After your tour, you will finish up with a good old fashioned Aussie sausage sizzle, which is always welcomed. A day out on the property can really bring on a hunger! So for good old fashioned outdoor fun for the whole family, be sure to check out Blazing Saddles.
