About Rundell’s Mahogany Trails


about2“Take a friend, partner or special group on a beach trail ride along the wild deserted beaches between Warrnambool and Port Fairy situated approximately 3 hours from Melbourne.”

Rundell’s Mahogany Trail Rides opened in 1997, we have been trail riding through the sand dunes and along the beach with a team of friendly and experienced staff giving clients the best experience with horses that we can.

We offer riders of all experience levels, from the complete beginner to the experienced rider the opportunity to ride wonderful horses along a quiet and isolated stretch of beach. Our horses have been specially bred and trained to cater for all riders from the nervous beginner to the very experienced so that everyone can enjoy the thrill of riding a horse along a wide open beach.

Every rider is given easy to understand instructions on how to ride, by our experienced staff, before leaving on the ride as well as help and instruction during your ride, so that all participants can feel safe, secure and in control while riding our horses. Our rides go out 7 days a week all year round (Closed Christmas and Good Friday only).


Discover Warrnambool’s coastline, a part of the Great Ocean Road, on horseback. Every season offers a different experience. Rug up in winter and get outdoors, gaze upon wild, crashing waves, beautiful gold and green sand dunes and leaves glistening after the rain. Or come for a ride in summer and see pristine blue water and sunny beaches while the horses splash through the shallows on the shoreline. If you are lucky catch a glimpse of a wallaby or seal, or sit back and view a great range of bird life.

Your ride will take you out over Kelly’s Swamp and cattle grazing grounds, through scenic sand dunes and out onto the beach, where you have the chance to go for a couple of canters. Staff will take photos for you before we leave the beach.

Our staff lead all rides so every rider will have a safe and enjoyable ride. Every rider walks and trots (a slow jog), with the opportunity to have a go at a canter, even if you have never ridden before, an experience that very few other trail riding establishments will offer first time riders, we don’t however gallop our horses.

Horse riding truly is a fantastic activity, get out and enjoy the outdoors, great exercise for your whole body and a heap of fun.

Live your dream at Rundell’s!!!
