The lighthouse is worth stopping to see. The views from the site are very pretty as is all the GOR coastline. There is good information about the lighthouse itself and you can book a tour to go inside and up to the top if you are willing to make the climb.
I have done trail rides in several parts of the country and the beach section of this ride has to be one of the longest available. I went in October on a fine day, but being still a little cool there were not many people around. Speaking to the trail leader, apparently in summer sometimes you cannot canter as it is unsafe for people on the beach - that would be a huge let down, so try and go around October or on a quiet day.The bush part is nice, but definitely try for a beach ride!Horses were lovely and looked in good health. The only thing I would suggest is for the people to be a little bit more welcoming and focus on customer service. At the end of the ride, she charged me $150 and told me where to put my boots/helmet and didnt even really say anything else. I asked to buy a bottle of water from the 'cafe' (not a cafe) and all they had were push top blackcurrant juices for kids. They should at least stock water. Tip: Dont take a big camera, or water bottle as they do not have saddle bags.
We had a very friendly tour guide and it was a very enjoyable and informative tour of the lighthouse, with a great view once you reach the top. My kids are big fans of the series "Round the Twist" and really wanted to see the lighthouse where it was filmed.
There are several viewing platforms of the ocean and lighthouse. Also a few walking tracks to surrounding areas. Must do in Aireys Inlet. The car park can get quite busy.
Catered for our beginner children perfectly. They enjoyed time with the horses and resident dog who loved to play catch. Instructor guided them soundly and all came back with a touch of butt ache and confident big smiles. Little ones also accommodated with pony rides and the experienced rider can go for a inland or surf side explore. Reasonably priced! Experienced careful. staff? Well done Blazing Saddles !
