Overview

Horse riding

Gallop through stunning alpine scenery on the tracks and trails traversed by Victoria's pioneering mountain cattlemen and the fabled The Man From Snowy River.

Historic huts in horse country

Whether you're a novice or experienced rider, there's a trail for you in the heart of Australia's biggest recreational horse riding area. Visit the historic cattlemen's huts built to shelter riders on the Bogong High Plains in the nineteenth century. Take a scenic ride over Mt Stirling, through stands of Alpine ash and snow gums, to Craig's Hut, the place where The Man from Snowy River was filmed.

Hear tall tales of life on horseback in the High Country as you take in soaring alpine vistas with legendary mountain horsemen Bruce McCormack or Charlie Lovick during a summer muster.

Horseback touring

Choose from a range of guided tours, from short rides along quiet bushland trails to multi-day packhorse tours of eventful days and relaxing evenings spent around the campfire.

Tour operators provide horses, equipment and basic tuition suited to your experience and abilities. All operators are licensed and committed to maintaining high safety standards, and experienced and fully trained staff lead and supervise all trail rides.
