Wanting a true blue experience while you’re Down Under? Check out our Aussie Hopventure rides!
Saddle up a roo and go for a ride in a classic picturesque Australian location. From Sydney’s Blue Mountains to gorgeous Kangaroo Island to the red sand of Uluru, we have 16+ locations Australia-wide. Don’t worry if you can’t make it to the real outback, there’s a location within a one hour drive of most major cities in Australia.
It’s the true Aussie way. We provide all the equipment including a saddle & helmet, and our bush guides will take you for the trip of a lifetime. Our private tour options are great for daredevils – get a real feel for the speed and height these incredible animals can get! A great way to learn about some of Australia’s most iconic fauna.
Scroll down to book your exciting Aussie Adventure or contact your travel agent to add it to your itinerary.
Book in your time or request the service and one of our Rider Roo’s will pick you up. Scan the QR code on the saddle to check in and strap yourself in for the ride of your life! If you’re feeling a bit nervous, you can book to be picked up from the RooRider HQ in each location where an assistant will help you get sorted out.
The Roo Pal will stop at your chosen destination and allow you to dismount before hopping off to their next ride. There is an emergency end function on each RooRider for your safety, but at this stage we are unable to change the destination during your ride. Stay tuned – we are working on this technology and training now!

We are passionate about the wellbeing of the planet and the wonderful people and animals that live here. That’s why we wanted to find an idea that has a positive and educational relationship with all of these things.
Don’t worry about our friendly kangaroos. Each roo participating in the program goes through comprehensive training to make sure they’re up to the physical challenge and well behaved for passenger safety. On initial trials we carefully monitored the physical health and happiness of each roo to ensure this program could be performed ethically. We found the kangaroo’s posture actually improved and their behaviour shows increased mental health – everyone wins!
We’ve taken care to prioritise Roorider experiences in places trying to overcome the devastation of the 2020 bushfires and 2021 floods, which is why our first locations include Kangaroo Island and Mallacoota. It’s an opportunity to draw important tourism back to these areas while teaching people about the wonderful flora and fauna our firies worked hard to save.
