Day Ride to Craig’s Hut

Day Ride of a Lifetime to Craig’s Hut (November – May)

Lady riding palomino horse, standing in front of Hut Re-live the movies and ride to Craig’s hut, the set where “The Man from Snowy River” was filmed.  The day starts from telephone box junction (TBJ) where we match you with your horse, mount up and meander through the Woollybutt trees.  Your horse picks his way along the cattle tracks whilst you warm into the saddle for the day. As you climb higher, you will pass through the gnarled Snow Gums to reach the summit of Mt. Stirling and take in the magnificent panoramic views.

Two people on horseback standing in front of HutYou will decend through more Snow Gums and whilst admiring the beautiful scenery, you will have teh opportunity  to chat to Bruce about his time spent as one of the crack riders in the Man From Snowy River movies. He can point out along the way different locations used the films.  As you come out of the tree line to ride over the short springy mountain turf in awe of the stunning views and the iconic Craig’s Hut itself. You tie your horse up and enjoy a tasty packsaddle lunch, (or be met by our backup crew with a scrumptious lunch). Breathe in the clean air and the views that stretch on forever before mounting your horse and making our way back.  Just below the summit we will make our way back towards King Saddle following ski trails and old logging and cattle tracks to TBJ where we will load the horses in the truck and head for home.
