Picture of the Day: The Snowy Horsemen

High Country cattle are moved by riders on horseback on the Howqua River near Mansfield.

The Herald-Sun today has a whole gallery of pictures Men from Snowy River rounding up cattle in the high country.  The Howqua River lies in the lower slopes of Mt. Buller and is quite a scenic area that has recovered from recent bushfires.  The river is also located near the popular The Bluff bushwalking trail.  Mansfield which is the main population center in the area is famous for being the location where The Man From Snowy River movie was based from.  The real Man from Snow River, Jack Riley however wasn’t from the Mansfield area, but can be found along the Alpine Way and the Murray Valley Highway.
