The property of Bartagunyah (meaning home of the Bardy Grubs) was named by the Nukunu Aboriginals & is nestled at the Southern end of Mt Remarkable just 5km from Melrose, the oldest town in the Flinders Ranges. Traditionally a pastoral property producing wool and prime lamb, Bartagunyah has diversified and is now better known to visitors for its quality wines and abundance of activities available on the property
Riding is moderate, but riding is rocky in places, some hills with some very steep sections with beautiful scenery to enjoy - Set amongst deep gorges and high mountain ranges with rugged rock formations and magnificent panoramas over the Spencer Gulf. Seasoned barefoot horses should be OK on the terrain. Route & duration of the rides will be confirmed on the day dependant on weather for the terrain. Riding will be mainly walking.
