This horse riding tour in the Top End is not a standard pony club trot. The folks at Katherine Outback Experience have decades of equestrian knowledge and the property — which is a three-and-a-half hour drive from Darwin — looks as if it was plucked from the set of Baz Luhrmann's Australia. Private or group horse riding lessons are available to riders of all experience levels, starting from $50 per person for a half-hour ride.

You can add a farm animal meet-and-greet to the visit, or book in the kids for the Outback Show where Golden Guitar winner Tom Curtin (who runs the farm) demonstrates horse-starting, working dog demonstrations, and Tom performing his own tunes on horseback.
