10,000 people can't be wrong.


Just imagine travelling through the picturesque countryside in a horsedrawn caravan, free from all the hustle and bustle of city life with nothing to disturb your relaxation but the gentle clip-clop of your Clydesdale and the sounds of the birds.

Sound good?
That's just what we offer you at The Colonial Way. We have horsedrawn caravans available for year round hire from our new home at Rheola, near Bendigo, in central Victoria.

"Relaxing, romantic…best holiday ever"
Our guest book reads like a travel brochure and it's no wonder people keep returning to experience a holiday like no other. There's no roughing it either with our comfortable, well fitted caravans.

No experience necessary
You don't need any experience with horses.
Patrick and Ann will teach you all you need to know. Our horses will teach you the rest. Our Clydesdales have had plenty of experience and are renowned for their peaceful dispositions and gentle strength.

1,500 square kilometres to explore
Routes are flexible, centred around the riverland, farmland and bushland of the richest gold area in Australia - Tarnagulla, Dunolly, Moliagul, Melville Caves and of course the Loddon River. You can enjoy a wide variety of activities or simply relax and unwind. Children will have a great time, as will the family dog.

A winner…in more ways than one
Since 1977, The Colonial way has completed around 4,000 hires and along the way picked up Silver and Gold medals in the prestigious Victorian Tourism awards; and a whole lot of friends.

"Our holiday… was just superb! I really don't think there are enough descriptive adjectives to paint the picture - unique, restful, exciting, peaceful, humbling and comfortable are words that spring to mind, but they all seem inadequate to describe the adventure.

Suffice to say that it is the only holiday we have ever been on that we completed with a feeling of wanting to do it all over again as soon as possible. So we'll be back…

Thank you for our holiday - yes, I know we paid for it - but being made to feel important and valued clients can't be bought with money'

Suzanne & Jim
