Welcome to Leahton Park.
Leahton Park is just 10 minutes from the historic gold mining city of Charters Towers and less than two hours from Townsvile right in the heart of cattle country – Outback Queensland, Australia. At 1100 acres and only a relatively small property by Queensland's vast standards, Leahton Park has the best of both worlds – close enough with easy access from Charters Towers and Townsville but also far enough out of town for you to enjoy the quietness and tranquillity of the Australian bush.
Leahton Park is a unique property in that it is home to the award winning tourist attraction - Texas Longhorn Wagon Tours & Safaris as well as one the most well known custom saddle shops in Australia - Bethel Saddlery. Leahton park is also home the registered fullblood Texas Longhorn herd - Horseshoe B Longhorns. Whether you are wanting to experience the Texas Longhorn Wagon Tour, to order a custom made saddle or to get your own Texas Longhorn herd started you will find it all here!
Texas Longhorn Wagon Tours & Safaris
There is nowhere else in Australia that guests can take a canvas covered wagon ride whilst viewing the magnificent Texas Longhorn herd and learn some of the history of this iconic and colourful breed of cattle and the influence they had throughout the world. Truly unique.
Not only is this a working cattle property, it is also the home of the renowned Bethel Saddlery Custom Saddle Shop; these saddles are in demand throughout Australia as well as the USA and Europe and a tour of the saddle shop can also be part of your Texas Longhorn Wagon Tour experience. There is a very nice western saddlery and gift shop at Leahton Park
Horseshoe B Longhorns
This is the largest herd of full blood Texas Longhorns in Australia with the emphasis being on structure, fertility & temperament. Established in 1997, we have provided the opportunity for numerous breeders across the country to establish their own Texas Longhorn herd.
We have lived in the North Queensland bush all of or lives and we invite you to join us for a while so you can experience a little of what we have here at Leahton Park.
