Brumby Week is a fully-curated week-long program, full of activities and workshops for explorers & adventurers, horse-lovers, vets & academics, and interested individuals alike.
Quintessential outback experience
From taking a 4×4 brumby safari through the red sand dunes, to listening to bush poetry under the stars around a campfire, Brumby Week aims to create a once-in-a-lifetime outback experience for you.
Fully organised & curated
During the week you will be looked after by our brilliant Brumby Week Team, who will ensure you have everything you need to enjoy yourself and get yourself from activity to activity, as well as advise you on some incredible things to do in your down-time.
