Texas Longhorn Wagon Tours

17 Jan Texas Longhorn Wagon Tours

Take a horse drawn wagon ride and a trip back in time – back to the old west, to the era of the legendary Texas Longhorns!

Jump aboard the western covered wagon, that was purpose built by us at Leahton Park for the wagon ride, viewing the largest herd of full-blood Texas Longhorns in Australia, including JR, the 2013 holder of the Guinness World record for longest horns. There are also water buffalo, American Bison, Scottish Highland Cattle and African Watusi to see.

Enjoy a delicious traditional Aussie Smoko including camp oven cooked damper/scones and billy tea plus Texas chocolate brownies and other home-cooked delicacies all served from a genuine ‘made in Texas’ Cowboy Chuck Wagon.

Following the wagon ride learn some of the secrets to what goes into the construction of some of the most sought after saddles in the country when you join them for an informative tour of the renowned Bethel Saddlery custom saddle shop.
