Horse cen­tre up for sale

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - SAM SMALLBONE

THE lo­cally owned and op­er­ated Wonga Beach Eques­trian Cen­tre is up for grabs.

Own­ers Sara Croaker and Ja­son Knack have been op­er­at­ing the busi­ness for the last five years, only the third own­ers since the eques­trian cen­tre started 23 years ago.

“The Wonga Beach horse ride is some­thing re­mark­able be­cause it is rid­ing be­tween two nat­u­ral won­ders of the world, it’s a great way for peo­ple to ex­pe­ri­ence the rain­for­est and the beach over­look­ing the reef,” Ms Croaker said.

“I think we will miss it, the horses and the dy­nam­ics of it but it is time to move on to new chal­lenges.”

The 14ha prop­erty in­cor­po­rates a three-bed­room work­ers’ ac­com­mo­da­tion, var­i­ous sheds, a sta­ble, ma­chin­ery stor­age, tack room and hitch­ing area.

The busi­ness of­fers two-anda-half hour horse rides in the morn­ing and af­ter­noon along the Wonga Beach.

They cur­rently op­er­ate 24 horses, a mix­ture of quar­ter horses, Aus­tralian stock horses and un­raced thor­ough­breds.

Mike Robert, of BizBro­kers, said the busi­ness was gen­er­at­ing a lot of in­ter­est from around Aus­tralia due to its ap­peal­ing life­style and unique qual­i­ties and po­ten­tial..
