The next epic encounter will be held on Sunday April 16, 2017
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 different 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.
Occurring annually for the past 26 years in the Victorian Alps, the match of strength and bravery originated from a “few quiet drinks” at the Dinner Plain Hotel. A mix of wild country blokes formed the institution known as the “Geebung Polo Club” rivalling the City Slickers “Cuff N’ Collar” Polo team.
Who will win the survival of the fittest, in a game twisted with competitive sportsmanship and character, this year?
Drawing crowds of over 3000 people the event hosts a fun day out for the whole family packed full with Live Music, Helicopter Rides & Easter Egg Drop, tug-o-war, food and wine stalls, fashions on the field, face painting, jumping castle and much more for the entire family. Bring a picnic rug and a chair, back up the car, sit back and relax!
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.
Cobungra Station is widely recognised as Victoria's largest cattle station and has a history and reputation as a grower of high quality Australian beef stretching back to the 1800s. Today, our cattle comprises Full Blood Wagyu, F1 Wagyu Cross and English Breed herds.
The property extends over more than 26,000 hectares of pristine freehold and leased grazing land amidst one of Australia’s most picturesque landscapes. Our location in the foothills of Mt Hotham makes Cobungra a naturally healthy place to raise cattle, combining pure air and abundant clean water with high altitude, known for aiding healing and promoting greater health, lung capacity and vigour.
