Texas Longhorn Wagon Tours & Safaris

Situated just 10 km from the famous gold city of Charters Towers or 140km south west of Townsville, North Queensland, is Leahton Park. This property is home to Horseshoe B Longhorns - the largest herd of purebred Texas Longhorn cattle in Australia and the famed Bethel Saddlery custom saddle shop. Operating from Leahton Park is the award winning Texas Longhorn Wagon Tour & Safaris.

Take a horse drawn wagon ride and a trip back in time - back to the old west, to the era of the legendary Texas Longhorns! These historical cattle are direct descendents of the millions of Texas Longhorns that walked in the great trail herds from Texas in the late 1800's. Enjoy a camp oven cooked damper and billy tea served from the genuine cowboy chuck wagon before taking an informative tour of the custom saddle shop. Learn some of the history of this iconic and magnificent breed of cattle whilst enjoying the yarns with your hosts and fellow travellers.

This isn't just another wagon ride - book now for a unique Australian outback experience where the Aussie Bush meets the Old West!
