3 Day Craigs Hut – King Valley Ride
Labour Day weekend
3 Day Pre Christmas Ride
3 days 2 nights.
Re-live the movies and ride to Craig’s Hut, the set where The Man From Snowy River was filmed.
The day starts from King Saddle on Mt. Stirling, where you will be matched with your horse. We then make our way through the magnificent Woolybutt forest and gnarled snow gums taking in the spectacular 360 degree views from the summit of Mt. Stirling. As your horse picks his way along old cattle tracks, you head towards the famous Craig’s Hut. Along the way you have the opportunity to chat to Bruce about his time spent as one of the crack riders in the Man From Snowy River movies and he can point out the different locations used in the films. When you arrive at Craig’s Hut you will have time to take in the stunning views with the “Sleeping Indian”, Mt.Cobbler, in the background.
Enjoy a chance to look around and have a photo taken with you on your horse with the iconic Craig’s Hut in the background. Then head over to where the support team have a scrumptious lunch waiting for you to enjoy.
After lunch, we descend into the King Valley making our way along the King River through the towering White Gums and Ferny Creek Valley to our mustering hut. There you can enjoy a camp oven roast and relax around the campfire.
This begins with a hearty breakfast, after which, we saddle up and make our way up through tree ferned valley to the top of Mt. No 3. Here we take in the beautiful views of the Delatite Valley from the lookout before sitting down to lunch under the Snow Gums. We once again mount our horses, then make our way down Burnt Hut Spur through the Woollybutt forest and then to our base camp in the Buttercup Valley.
After a leisurely breakfast we saddle up and make our way through the bush to the banks of the Delatite River, where we have a relaxing lunch. We then head towards home, traversing the ridges and taking in the views of Mt. Timbertop and the Delatite valley along the way and then make our way across Buttercup Creek.
