2nd November – 8th June

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 visit the beautifully isolated Craig’s Hut – once only seen by cattlemen and horsemen.

Take in the impressive mountain range and abundance of wildlife, as you absorb the history that lies behind this extraordinary hut that featured in the film ‘The Man from Snowy River’. We’ll treat ourselves to a picnic lunch and relax under the snow gums. The perfect background for a great photo!

And if that wasn’t relaxing enough or you need some more scenery- finish the tour with a wine tasting, the finest regional produce and sunset views at a winery. What a way to complete a fabulous country day before you are taken back to the bustling city of Melbourne.

Having grown up with the Man From Snowy River films, I couldn’t wait to take the Craig’s Hut tour. The iconic home of the films’ main character sits in the High Country of Australia’s Victoria province. If you loved the films, or you just want to see the amazing mountains, this tour is wonderful. Be prepared for a full day of adventures — from morning tea, a picnic lunch on the mountain — right next to Craig’s hut, and a visit to Binderee Falls (and a chance to stand behind the falls) to an evening wine tasting. Bruce was knowledgable of the films, the history of the area, and an expert 4WD driver. I highly recommend the tour and the company. Thanks for a great tour!
