Featured guest review:
‘We enjoyed a lovely ride on a winter’s day, snug under the rugs. The carriages also have a cover for rain days. The pace was very nice. We took the 30 minute ride and it was just perfect. I would do this again and I highly recommend it.’ Drtgfnz

What you can expect
This 30-minute Melbourne Horse and Carriage Ride departs from the city centre. The route will take you through some of the city’s most renowned and historic parks, and past several famous landmarks.
Climb aboard your heritage carriage, which is drawn by two magnificent Percheron horses. While only one horse is required to comfortably pull a carriage, two are used as company for one another. [More]
You’ll cross the Yarra River on the historic Princess Bridge, then pass the famous Victorian Arts Centre. When you reach the Queen Victoria Gardens you’ll see the magnificent Giant Floral Clock, which is an immaculately manicured profusion of floral blooms.
Other highlights along the route on this Melbourne Horse and Carriage Ride include the Walker Fountain on St Kilda Road (which is especially striking when it’s illuminated at night), the lush Kings Domain Gardens and the emotive Shrine of Remembrance.
A ride in a traditional horse-drawn landau or vis-à-vis carriage offers a rare glimpse of a bygone era. Enjoy the elegance of yesteryear on this Melbourne Horse and Carriage Ride through the city’s magnificent parks.

Such an amazing experience for my whole family. Thank you. The children loved it and can not wait to come for a ride again. The driver was amazing and very knowledgeablable about the city and the sites. The horses were very good and friendly with the children. A must do when in Melbourne.
