 Brief History

Built by Ken Kidman, Alec Kidman and Bill Napthali in 1932. Timber was dragged across the river behind a draft horse.

Construction

The hut is 2.8m by 2.8mm. It is built of corrugated iron over a timber frame, with an iron roof. The chimney has a timber frame, iron clad "roof" and lined with rocks. The door has unusual horizontal pine weatherboards, which were replaced in 2005

NPWS reconstructed the fireplace shown in the accompanying photo.
