Dinner Plain Geebung Polo

A tradition held by many at Easter time, is to visit Dinner Plain in the Victorian High Country to take part in the Geebung Polo match. While the event is untraditional to most classic polo games, the match itself is still based on an Australian tradition, and is ingrained culturally by the poem “The Geebung Polo Club” written by AB “Banjo” Patterson.

Dinner Plain brings you a lot more than the Geebung vs. Cuff and Collar Polo Match at Cobungra Station, but a host of Easter activities. Celebrate with your friends and family by breathing in the crisp Alpine air, take in sweeping vista views and relax in the pure high country this Easter.

For tickets and more information visit www.geebungpolo.com.au

Easter-Free Guided Bushwalks

Sunday 5th April 2015 (Easter Holidays)

The gold rush era of Victoria saw Mt Hotham’s first European ‘Bushwalkers’ crossing the Great dividing range between the Gipplsand and Ovens Valley goldfields. With the subsequent discovery of payable gold around Hotham from the early 1860s, rough paths were blazed into well-defined tracks. Learn how this golden era eventually lead to the formation of the Mt Hotham Ski Resort and discover the stories of the individuals who shaped the mountain as we know it today.

Mt Hotham Resort Management’s Walking Track Manager & Cultural Heritage Officer, Andrew Swift, will be your guide and before your very eyes bring this history back to life.

9.30am – Cobungra Ditch/Huts Walk Track head, via Skeleton Creek
