"There was movement at the station, for the word had passed around..." So starts the iconic Australian poem by Banjo Paterson about a man from the Snowy River who became a legend after he recaptured a prizewinning racehorse that fled his owner's property and joined up with a group of brumbies in the High Country; that man, reputedly, was Jack Riley.
Jack Riley, the inspiration for Banjo Patterson's 'The Man from Snowy River', was the manager of Tom Groggin Station in the late 1800s.
Tom Groggin Station is a beautiful 2,000 acre working cattle property set in a beautiful valley on the slopes of the Snowy Mountains; in the heart of the Victorian high country and is completely surrounded by national parks and wilderness with a km frontage to theUpper Murray River.
