Shining the spotlight on Boneo Park
Boneo Park is a beautiful 340 hectare property located in the heart of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. Set within and protecting pristine wetland and Moonah woodland, Boneo Park was carefully sited on previously degraded farmland and provides an excellent example of sustainable development.
Boneo Park opened in 2007 and over the years this stunning full-service agistment facility has hosted some of the country’s top competitions including the Australian Jumping Championships and Australian Dressage Championships, along with clinics run by the best riders from around the world, including Charlotte Dujardin and George Morris.
The initial development included horse paddocks, an indoor arena and adjoining 20 stables and now includes two grass arenas and three beautiful sand arenas which boast Martin Collins Australia surfaces. There are also more than ten kilometres of trails through the wetland, woodland and grassland of this unique property.
The pinnacle of the Australian Jumping calendar, the Pryde’s Easifeeds Australian Jumping Championships, has been held at Boneo Park since 2018 and each year has been a spectacular event, with competitors and spectators alike enjoying the wonderful facilities and great hospitality provided by Boneo Park.
Preceded by the popular Boneo Cup competition, Boneo Park hosts close to 500 riders and over 800 horses, including the cream of Australia’s showjumpers who come together over two weeks in November to compete in these major competitions.

Arilla Restaurant opened in April 2019 and has brought many new visitors to Boneo Park. The vision was to have a space and food offering which attracts people to the restaurant as a destination in its own right and allows interaction between the general public and our sport in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
