• Corryong Bush Festival

2-9 April 2020 – featuring Corryong’s, Man From Snowy River Bush Festival

Man From Snowy River Bush Festival, Corryong Victoria

Victoria’s High Country is an area of outstanding interest and beauty that features national parks and wildlife, Victoria’s highest mountains, alpine rivers, snow resorts, pastoral lands, quaint villages, vineyards and a rich history including gold discovery, pioneering cattlemen, bushrangers and bush arts and crafts.

Tragically, this beautiful region has been one of the worst impacted by the 2019-2020 cataclysmic bushfires

So, Newport Travel has worked together with the local tour operators and small businesses to put together this outstanding 8-day discovery tour of Victoria’s stunning High Country.

We like to also call it our Bushfire Bounce Back Tour. This is our way of supporting our fire-affected communities which are now both open for business, and have so much to offer the curious and adventurous traveller.

We at Newport Travel see tourism as key to helping local communities bounce back from the bush fire devastation, both socially and economically.

Why these dates? 

Not only is it time to celebrate the end of the bushfire season and the arrival of the awesome alpine, autumn colours… it coincides with the iconic MAN FROM SNOWY RIVER BUSH FESTIVAL at Corryong.
