‘It wasn’t a special occasion nor planned, but one evening we found ourselves on a carriage tour driven by Dream. We took the city route, as opposed to the usual garden route, and it was incredibly impressive. As someone who lives in Melbourne, I know this to be a very touristy thing – but I have to say, if you want to see this city in a different light – give it a go. Speaking to Dream after the ride, we were also impressed to hear how they raise and care for their horses everyday.’ Eutomo

What You Can Expect

This premium one-hour Melbourne CBD and Gardens Horse and Carriage Ride begins at Federation Square, where you’ll meet your driver and the two magnificent Percheron horses that will draw the carriage. While only one horse is required to comfortably pull a carriage, two are used as company for one another.

You’ll climb on board and begin your exploration of the city by passing over the historic Princess Bridge, which spans the Yarra River. Your carriage will take you past the Victorian Arts Centre, then head through the majestic Queen Victoria Gardens. There’s time to admire the Walker Fountain and the famous Giant Floral Clock. You’ll also visit the lovely Kings Domain Gardens and see the emotive Shrine of Remembrance.

This Melbourne CBD and Gardens Horse and Carriage Ride also makes its way along elegant Collins Street — home to luxury designer boutiques and heritage buildings. There’s more exquisite period architecture to enjoy on Spring Street, including Victoria’s Parliament House and the Old Treasury Building.

This Melbourne CBD and Gardens Horse and Carriage Ride is one of the most memorable and relaxing sightseeing experiences the Victorian capital has to offer. Traverse the city’s grand boulevards and manicured gardens in the company of two gentle giants.
