Picture of resilience
According to tradition, when soldier and pastoralist James Brumby was transferred from Sydney to Van Diemen’s Land in 1801, he was forced to release a number of horses into the bush. Known as ‘brumbies’, their descendants continue to roam the Australian Alps today. Hardy and independent, they are seen by many as symbolic of the Australian national character.
