A slower paced and relaxed tour, spend a day admiring panoramic views as we travel in the comfort of a 4-wheel drive with a small tour group to Mansfield, a beautiful country town.
Enjoy a Helicopter flight to visit the famous “Craig’s Hut” as featured in “The Man from Snowy River” movie. This film was based on the legendary Banjo Paterson poem telling the story of a mountain lad who rides out with experienced stock-men in pursuit of a prized colt that had joined the brumbies. Initially the lad is ridiculed due to his size and that of his pony, however when the wild horses escape the rugged ranges, his bravery and horsemanship become legendary. The perfect background for a great photo!
Travelling back there will be time to enjoy the peaceful Yarra Valley views and visit the Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery a decadent treat. What a way to complete a fabulous country day before you are taken back to the bustling city of Melbourne.
