The Man from Snowy River
The Historic Bredbo Inn, is believed to be the place where ‘The Man from Snowy River’ died. It is believed that he passed away in the premises after falling from his horse crossing the bridge on a frosty morning. According to legend, the author of The Man from Snowy River, Banjo Paterson, was a regular of the Bredbo Inn and on one occasion told the publican that local horseman Charlie McKeahnie was indeed the man from Snowy River. While there have been many claims of the true identity of the man from Snowy River, established and well-regarded historian Tim the Yowie Man has extensively researched the topic and believes the Bredbo Inn to be the man from Snowy River’s place of passing.
