Bush traditions come to life
IN the foothills of the Snowy Mountains at Corryong, The Man From Snowy River Bush Festival (March 31-April 3, 2016) is proudly keeping a unique part of Australian history alive and showcasing what our Aussie bush folk take for granted as life.
Enjoy the many amazing bush poets – (who this year will be vying for the title for Victorian Bush Poetry Champion) to the toe tapping of the Bush Talent competition, or the dustbusting action of the very unique Aussie horse events that keep the crowds enthralled with the action and horsemanship on display.
The festival features the live re-enactment of the poem with crowds watching “in very fear” as bush horsemen chase wild horses down the mountainside in pursuit of the colt that got away.
Headlining the Music Stage on Friday night will be Country Rock Classics Frankie J Holden and Wilbur Wilde, Mustered Courage, Pete Denahy, Ambur Slade and many more.
Saturdany night rodeo bursts into action, featuring the best of the best stock versus champion riders.
The festival’s own home grown Man From Snowy River $80,000 Horsemanship Challenge, now known Australia wide as one of the best and toughest “Aussie” horsemanship tests in the country, will also fascinate visitors.
The event also features Bush Poetry, Ute Muster, Dog Jump, Art and Photographic Show, Street Parade, Working Cattledog Championships - oh yeah, and fun, a real lot of fun.
