Storyline

Based on Banjo Paterson's poem "Man From Snowy River", this series takes place in Paterson's Ridge, a small town set in the mountains near Melbourne, during the late 19th century. It tells the story of Matt McGregor, one of the richest and most influential man in town, as well as widower father of three children: Colin, who's the town preacher, Rob and Danni, the tomboy youngest daughter. Unresolved sexual tension comes in the shape of Matt's childhood independent, free-spirited friend, the recently widowed Kathleen O'Neil, who's returned to Paterson's Ridge with her son after having spent many years in England.

an excellent portrayal of what it means to be fair to yourself and others.
30 June 2009 | by nathan-duffSee all my reviews

Portraying an image on TV that Banjo Paterson created with a pen all those a year ago on paper deserves applause. I once roamed the high country on horseback but now live in the city.

It's hard to forget the Mystery and Beauty of the High Country Mountains but over the years the memories begin to fade. Fortunately I rediscovered the television series The Man from Snowy River: The McGregor Saga.

My fiancé had never seen the show before and it's been many years since l had seen it when it aired on Television all those years ago. The show met my expectations as it did when when l was a kid, full of adventure and Dramas that inspired my imagination of what it would have been like in those days.

Apart from that though, the show takes us both to a place that allows us to witness the trials and tribulations the McGregors go through to survive and the efforts they all put in for the preservation of their family, community and their way of life in the High Country.

The romance of the bush and the town of Paterson's Ridge presents to us the type of supporting community I'd like to think still exist out there, unfortunately people like Matt and Kathleen are hard to find and if communities like Patersons Ridge still exist, l'd like to think l too would make the same efforts Matt and the Mcgregors make to help preserve the meaning of the word community and then add my name to the proud member board of that community.

I think we could all learn a little something about morals and Christianity towards your fellow man Colin McGregor, "Matt's Reverend Son" tries to teach us and its just the kind of values our kids need to be exposed too.

For my Fiancé and l, The McGregor Saga gives us an insight into what it means to be true to yourself and to help out those who need it. Its a- shame the show's over and there wasn't more seasons as we have finished watching all 4 and whats more disappointing, is that there isn't any show like it on Television anymore.
