Things I Did

Fish
Hike
Horse

Fly Fishing, Bundara Valley -  Jamie our fly fishing guide picked us up in his Landcruiser and we headed down the dirt road to a section of the river that provided good access and an abundance of open river.  After going through some local knowledge on the river and best flies to use, we started fishing upstream. Jamie knew the river incredibly well and was pointing out deep pools and bubbling runs to fish.

Bush Walk, Bundara Valley – We were feeling adventurous so we walked up along the river and admired the vast range of red and orange autumn colours that lined the banks; it was stunning.  You can also wander the property and give the nearby horses a pat.   

Horse Riding, Bundara Valley - I was on a beautiful chestnut horse called Mack and Chris had a dark beauty called Tom. Strong and stoic mountain horses they were.  We slowly walked our steeds along the river where we loved seeing all the rustic cabins tucked away in the trees.  Speak with Helen the owner for more details.   

Places I Went

River

Bundara River – ‘The Man from Snowy River’ film has long been a favourite of Chris’ and mine, and now here we are, perched in the high country with our own log cabin next to the flowing banks of the Bundara River and surrounding mountain ranges.
