A guide for all horse riders and horse enthusiasts about riding in parks, such as safe practices to avoid environmental damage, camping and driving with horses, group events and where to obtain more information.

Hendra virus
A small number of Hendra virus occurrences have been confirmed in northern New South Wales and Queensland. There are national parks and reserves between Sydney and Queensland that allow horse riding and may also support flying fox colonies or roost sites, either in the reserve or nearby. Horse riders should avoid riding or camping in close proximity to flying fox colonies or roost sites. More information is available from the Department of Primary Industries.
