Young Jim Craig returns to the Australian high country, after being away herding the horses he caught and sold, in order to provide a stake for his future. He finds things quite different than when he left: his girlfriend, Jessica Harrison, is being pursued by a rich suitor, Jessica's father wants him out of her life, and the residents of the high country are being driven out by the wealthier low country ranchers. Jim definitely has his work cut out for him.

When Harrison has left to find Jessica after she tells him she is going to speak to Jim, we see Harrison riding over a hill with a number of riders behind him. However, Jake and the other mountain men are in the group with Harrison, when they are actually in town having a beer at the tavern. This is because the scene was used from the final chase scene of the movie when everyone is in pursuit of Alistair Patton. Furthermore, when Harrison finds Jessica, he has only two other men with him when he says, "You two can head on back." See more
Broaden your minds -- have another beer. Have two!
