At Christmas time, so many fetes and events for families and kids have pony rides available and my little one got a bit addicted to them. He now thinks that pony rides should just be part of his regular week!
But outside of school fetes and festivals, where can you go in Brisbane to take your kids for a pony ride?
Trevena Glen is a beautiful farm located in the D'Aguilar Range only a 40 minute drive from Brisbane CBD. They have a monthly farm open day where kids can meet the animals, have a wagon ride, jump on the jumping castle, and of course, enjoy a pony ride.
