High Country Cattlemen Huts

The districts surrounding the High Country were home to the legendary cattlemen, immortalised by poet AB 'Banjo' Paterson in The Man from Snowy River. You'll still find their historic huts on the Bogong High Plains, Alpine National Park and Mount Buller. The rustic huts were built by the cattlemen to use as shelter when driving their cattle up to the plains in summer. Although they are not generally accessible by car, you can visit the following huts on foot, horseback or bicycle.
