Minnamurra (film)

Minnamurra is a 1989 Australian film about a feisty woman who lives on a country property. It is also known as Outback and Wrangler.

The plot appears to have been inspired by The Squatter's Daughter. David Stratton called it "almost The Man from Snowy River III in terms of plot and character".
