The “Speeler Plain” Ride

We pick you up from your Cradle Mountain accommodation or reception at Cradle Mountain Hotel and take you to the stables at the base of the Speeler Plain.

Fit out with helmets and boots prior to a safety briefing and introduction to your horses.

Your ride climbs up through the changing mix of Alpine Eucalypt and Myrtle Forest to the button grass plains at the top of The Speeler Plain.

This is THE VIEW of Cradle Mountain, Barn Bluff, Western Bluff, Mt.Roland and  Black Bluff.

This is the most spectacular vista available to our guests without having to do some serious bushwalking!
