Chum Creek Horse Rides and Huts have the pleasure of offering our 3 day, 2 night “NDIS 90 Mile Beach Horse Ride Retreat.”
Enjoy some respite away from the big city down at 90 Mile Beach. Staying in our private beachside accommodation in the lovely little town of Seaspray, you’ll feel a million miles away from it all.
We offer up to 2 half days of riding along the beach. This can be altered to allow for individual capabilities and requirements. When not riding, take time to explore the beach, go for a swim in the lagoon or try a spot of surf fishing.
Staying in our freshly renovated beach house with your own private room, there is ample space to relax. Facilities include a games room, lounge with TV and Wi-Fi, a full kitchen and a private outdoor decking area. Located directly across from the beach you can hear the waves from your own front door. All meals are provided.
Included in the price is transport departing from and returning to our main site in Chum Creek, just 1 hour from Melbourne. (Direct pickups/drop-offs may be arranged for an extra fee depending on location).
