Lunch with the Living Legends
- Duration: 270 Minutes (approx.)
- Location: Melbourne, VIC
- Product code: LWLL
The perfect day for a horse-lover short on time in Melbourne as you travel in air-conditioned comfort to Living Legends.
Located within Woodlands Park, Living Legends is modelled closely on the Home of Rest for Horses in the United Kingdom. Like the Home of Rest, they aim to support equine research, education and training to benefit horses of all ages and breeds. Special emphasis, however, is given to the care of older horses.
Living Legends is home to over 20 retired champion race horses from Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong. You'll get to meet favourites such as Fields of Omagh, Silent Witness, Rogan Josh, Brew, Apache Cat, The Cleaner, Paris Lane, Efficient, Who Shot The Barman (NZ), Redkirk Warrior (GB) and Peniaphobia (IRE), Tom Melbourne, Fawkner and Almandin. Enjoy the opportunity to meet, pat and feed the horses and talk to the stable hands that care for them. Or pay your respects at the graveside of Legends who are no longer living: Might and Power, Chief De Beers, Doriemus, Better Loosen Up, Regal Roller and more.
After your meet and greet session with the horses, relax in the beautiful, historic Woodlands Homestead with a light lunch. This is followed by some free time to explore the on-site museum or surrounding park before travelling back to your cruise ship or hotel.
