What has in previous years been described as a 5-day ride, will now be a 6-night package. You arrive on the evening before the ride for lodge accommodation at Arbie’s Lodge opposite the Bogong Hotel
We recommend a meal at the pub (where a complimentary drink is waiting for Bogong Adventurers with the purchase of a meal) Roi’s Diner is also just across the road and the meals are delicious. The meal the night of arrival is not included in the package but a cheese platter is provided when arriving at Arbie’s Lodge.
A cooked farmhouse breakfast will be waiting for you at Spring Spur Homestead, in Kath’s Kitchen at 7am on the morning the trip departs, before commencing our usual 5-day (or 10 day) ride program. Spring Spur is only a 5 minutes drive (4kl) from Arbie’s Lodge straight down Mountain Creek Rd, turn left into Freda’s Lane and come up the track through two sets of blue double gates. On arrival follow the smells of freshly brewed coffee, home made bread and more!
After breakfast we then prepare you for your pack horse trip — rolling up your bed roll or swag and meet your trusty mountain steed who will carry you through the mountains on your journey of a lifetime!
On the evening of the 5th riding day, we return to the property. A testimonial dinner will be arranged, and it’s time to reminisce and relax with newfound friends in the spacious lounge area or have a quiet beer on the deck overlooking the mountains!
Breakfast the following morning will be provided at Arbie’s `continental Style’ and will be available at your leisure, as after 5 days in the saddle a `sleep in’ is well deserved. All in all, 2 nights lodge accommodation, 4 nights camping and all meals make up our 6-night package.
