Day 1: Arrive at 9.30am at our high country farming property that’s been in the Watson family for many generations.
After saddling up, we set off on our ‘Man from Snowy River’ experience on horseback. We ride up to spectacular 360 degree views and along the way, watch out for the wildlife that often takes a look at us, including kangaroos, wallabies and Australia’s largest bird of flight, the wedge tail eagle.
We stop for a picnic lunch and then in the afternoon we traverse the bridle tracks through quiet valleys and points of rich historical interest.
We arrive at “The Hideout” that sits beside the Howqua River and offers rustic bunkhouse accommodation or a swag under the stars with shared bathrooms.
Day 2: Next morning we enjoy an early hearty country breakfast and start our journey up the majestic Howqua River along the high track towards “Sheepyard Flat”. It is a picturesque days riding with spectacular views over the river, tree fern gullies and long cantering sections.

Day 4: Again an early rise and cooked breakfast. Today we return via the river track to the ‘The Hideout’ with long cantering flats and 50 river crossings with a late lunch
Day 5: Next morning we enjoy a hearty country breakfast that gives you a big energy boost before we set off for ‘Kate Camerons Peak’ where we see the perilously steep hill where the famous jump scene from the movie was filmed.
