Michelle Brown and her partner Ian travel to some of the most remote parts of Kosciuszko National Park to capture brumbies in their wild habitat.
Michelle, a photographer, keenly supports the bid to heirtage list the brumbies – a move that still waits in abeyance before NSW Parliament.
She says the brumbies are a vital link to our history and opposes a cull in the park. National Parks claims there are up to 6000 wild horses in the park, but brumby protection groups say the real figure is a lot lower, probably about 700.
“The majority of my photographs are taken between the Kiandra and Long Plain areas of KNP,” Michelle said.
“We hike into the bush anywhere from 0-20 kms at times to find the brumbies.
“Kiandra, Gooandra, Bullocks Hill,Yarrangobilly and Long Plain are the main areas during winter and where most of these pictures have been taken.”
