Unique and Memorable! Just a couple of the words to describe the one and only experience of its kind anywhere. The Texas Longhorn Wagon Tour features a horse drawn covered wagon ride viewing the magnificent herd Texas Longhorns - the most famous and iconic breed of cattle that have ever lived. Learn the fascinating story of these historical and spectacular animals that are direct descendents of the millions of Texas Longhorns that walked in the great trail herds from Texas in the late 1800's.
From the comfort of the covered wagon see the spectacular herd of genuine full-blood Texas Longhorns including the longest horned cattle in Australia. There are also Asian Water Buffalo, American Bison, Mexican Sardo Negro, Indian Gyr, African Ankole Watusi and Scottish Highland cattle.
Enjoy genuine cowboy coffee or billy tea brewed on an open fire, home made Anzac bikkies and Chocolate Texas Brownies all served from a genuine 1866 ‘Made in Texas’ replica cowboy Texas Chuck wagon.
An unforgettable part of this unique experience is the tour of the ‘The Longhorn Love Shack’. You will also get to see the brand new ‘JR Gallery of Horns’ including our own Guinness World Record horned steer on display - horns that exceed 10 feet 4 inches or 3.15m measured from tip to tip.
