We breed, train and educate our own horses. We make sure that each horse is suitable to the carriage operation (as some horses are just not suited for that particular exercise). Therefore, you can be confident that all the horses that we provide as carriage horses have been trained and tested and are suited to the task.
Cobb and Co Carriages is a fully owned and operated business that takes pride and is passionate about delivering the following services:
- Kids Birthday parties
- Heritage Events
- Fetes / Fairs

We work closely with you to ensure that we provide the best service and end product for your particular needs and to suit every occasion and event.
Great attention to detail is taken to be able to create a suitable look for each specific occasion requested by our clients; from the decoration of the carriage and the horses to appropriate attire for our drivers.
We cater for the rustic ‘yester year’ theme from hay bale wagon rides to the beautiful modern white wedding carriages; even the famous Cobb and Co stagecoach is available.
So for your next special occasion or event think about the unique service we could offer, taking you back in time to arrive in classic style in a horse drawn carriage.
Great pride and satisfaction is taken in being able to create a suitable look for each specific occasion requested by our customers – through the decoration of the carriage & horses and appropriate attire for drivers.

Our tours range from:

- Fully customised tours – we are very flexible in our services (examples – a garden lunch tour; before and after dinner collection with return; or for particular shows, concerts or events).
We are committed to caring for our horses and have strict procedures for ensuring all our horses are fit, healthy, happy and up to the task.
Given this been our way of life not just a business for us, our horses are our main priority, this means sometimes we cannot set dates and times in advance for when we are operating as it depends on the weather. We don’t operate in extreme conditions, in the summer times we tend to operate in the afternoon evening to avoid the hotter conditions. Bookings will also be available through the Bendigo Information Centre online and dates and times will be updated regularly to accommodate with the weather conditions.
