20 top tours: Man from snowy river & heritage ride 

Follow the pioneers on a horse ride through Australia’s High Country and have the entire Man From Snowy River experience with fifth-generation Mansfield farmer Michael Watson. Thank you, Banjo Paterson.

This five-day, 60km horse ride traverses Victoria’s alpine region along bridle tracks that pass across dramatic ridge tops, then drop into deep tree fern gullies and wind through iconic locations bearing names like Whiskey Flat, Tobacco Flat and Tunnel Bend. During the daylight hours aboard your trusty steed, you’ll tackle river crossings and canter through quiet valleys.

But at night weary heads will rest on feather-down pillows in classic country house hotels.
