A permanent monument recognising The Man From Snowy River has been created by artist Brett Garling, Outback magazine reports in their Aug/Sep 2009 issue. The monument is planned for unveiling at Corryong, Victoria, during The Man From Snowy River Bush Festival due to be held at Corryong on 8-11 April 2010.
The sculpture is in the finishing stages and local fundraising efforts are continuing with a goods and services auction featuring AFL legend Ron Barassi as guest speaker and sales of personalised pavers for $50 each.
To date, the Corryong community of approximately 1200 has raised $83,000, with the auction hoping to achieve an extra $30,000.
