Everything on site has been dreamt of and built by Leanne and John Williams over the past 30 years. Originally a tea tree farm, so much has changed under their ownership. An equestrian center built to want for nothing. We are fortunate to have an olympic sized covered arena (60m x 40m) and a more intimate sized outdoor arena (18m x 35m) perfect for one on one training while enjoying the Australian weather.
Our horses live in paddock but we do have 2 blocks of stables. One for Avoca Park’s horses and a 2 stable block for agistee and guest’s horses. With a float carpark, roundyard, weaning yard and mounting dummmy we have everything we could possibly need for Avoca Park’s equestrian needs.
You are welcome to walk down our paths to our small retreat, a sanctuary settled in the the center of our back paddocks. With ornate windmill and benches its a beautiful and peaceful spot in the property to gaze upon our beautiful scenery, enjoy a book or try some birdwatching- kookaburras, rosellas, fairy wrens and rainbow lorikeets frequent the area.
While exploring we hope you get the oppurtunity to meet our wonderful horses, dogs, cats and, of course, our beloved pair of donkeys Johnny Simpson and Cuddlepie. Its a picturesque walk surrounded with the sounds of birds and the occasional donkey bray.
