It's a wild Western adventure - Australian style!
Kirk Douglas delivers an outstanding performance in this legendary western adventure set in the great Australian outback.
An ambitious rancher (Douglas) sets his sights on the hills of the awesome Snowy River country. Buried somewhere in that pristine wilderness, protected by treacherous terrain and bands of wild, stampeding horses, is a fortune in unmined gold. Before the rancher can stake his claim, however, his world is turned upside down when a cowboy steals his daughter's heart and uncovers a secret in those hills more precious than any treasure.
