Nestled in the heart of Merrijig at the foot of the High Country & Mt Buller in the Great Dividing Range on Merrijig Rodeo Grounds at McCormack Park, the action packed event couldn’t be set in a more beautiful location, in fact Merrijig was the setting for both of the highly successful “Man From Snowy River” movies, such was the natural beauty of the place, not to mention the Cattlemen & Horsemen & women who inhabit it.

There will be genuine and unique Merrijig Rodeo merchandise exclusive to the event (though purchases can be made via email contact). Fun & Good times are a given & there are always genuine cowboys & cowgirls a plenty.
