Trail Riding Centre And Residence

architectural sketchA large rural block on the river above Cedar Creek Falls. A series of separate pavilions were required including a homestead, barn, amenities, sheds etc with associated tanks, fences, lunging yard etc. The amenities and homestead linked by timber walkways and decks, with views through the Conway Ranges and Whitsunday hinterland. The first thing to decide was a limited palette of materials that could be used everywhere for everything, and to establish detailing that would be consistent and achievable by owner or builders with a chain-saw.

architectural photoAlthough the facility has closed it is always fun to return here. The amenities block has the charm of a much loved pet.
