Overview

Most Victorian brumbies are located in mountainous areas particularly the Eastern Alps and Bogong High Plains.  An isolated population exists in the Barmah Forest and scattered mobs have been seen throughout East Gippsland.

Wild horses have been known in Victoria for over 100 years.  The establishment of National Parks over much of their range area has focused attention on managing numbers because of environmental concerns.

The Victorian Brumby Association has prepared excellent information sheets on the major areas of brumby habitat:

Alpine National Park Brumbies
