Saturday afternoon sees “The Kilkivan Landcare Olympic Park Trail” trace a rough figure of 8 for 15kms around Kilkivan – this incorporates a short stretch of the Kilkivan – Kingaroy Rail Trail, as well as a ride through the park before joining the longer trail for the Grand Parade of Horses.
Oakview Carriage Trail – Saturday 7 April 2018
Saturday also sees the full day “Oakview Carriage Trail” which starts at 9am at Weier Oval before heading east of Kilkivan and crossing Wide Bay Creek a few times before it returns to town for the Grand Parade of Horses.
We recommend shoes are worn by horses as all trails have sections of sharp gravel; this is particularly the case for “The Kurandah Trail”, which has some stretches which cannot be accessed by a rescue float Lame horses may need to be walked for some distance before collection can be achieved.
