GEEBUNG POLO

The next epic encounter will be held on Sunday April 21st, 2019

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 28 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?
