Michael Lake served as production supervisor. Production company: Michael Edgley International. Estimated budget: 3.5 million Australian dollars. The ending chase scenes feature 90 horses and 40 riders. Filmed on location in the Great Dividing Ranges in Victoria, Australia. Shot in Panavision and Eastmancolor. Rated M by Australia's Commonwealth Film Censors. A sequel to the film appeared in 1988, Return to Snowy River. Man's producer, Geoff Burrowes, directed Return, which starred Tom Burlinson, Sigrid Thornton, Brian Dennehy, Nicholas Eadie, and Bryan Marshall.After his father's death, young Jim Craig leaves his home in the Snowy River valley to work for a wealthy landlord, who happens to be the estranged brother of Jim's mentor, a grizzled old prospector.

While fighting to earn his spurs by breaking a herd of wild horses, Jim falls in love with his employer's spunky daughter, Jessica (Sigrid Thornton). When one of the horses escapes and the blame falls on Jim, the boy must return to the Australian hills where he grew up, in order to find the horse and come back a man.
