Snowy Range Horseback Tours

Snowy Ranges Horseback Tours, which were established over 25 years ago, are operated by Kevin Higgins, and supported by his capable staff. Kevin’s family has lived and worked in the mountains for generations and form part of the history of the high country.

During the months of November through April most rides begin at Higgins Hut on the Bennison Plains, which, at 5000 feet above sea level, is set in the true High Country of Australia. The hut is an original mountain Cattleman’s hut belonging to the Higgins family and is still used today by mountain cattlemen when droving and mustering. The hut incorporates a bunkhouse which has comfortable beds and a wood heater to ensure warm nights rest. The hut also has hot showers and septic toilet facilities.

On the extended horse riding tours we follow the spectacular scenery from “The Man from Snowy River” movies including Craig’s Hut; alternately we visit Lake Tarli Karng, the hidden lake nestled deep within the mountains. We also visit historical Wonnangatta Station and the Bogong High Plains area.

During the months of May, June and October the rides run in and around the picturesque Licola Valley. We visit places such as Mt Lookout, Mt Selma, Mt Matlock, Horse Hill Range, The Connors High Plains, Woods Point Pub and Walhalla.
