Brief History

The original hut was a gabled, pole framed slab hut, clearly built for grazing, as yards were built immediately adjacent.

This hut was built in 1964 by the Lands Department for the dog man, who worked in the area trapping feral dogs.

Construction

A pole frame hut over a concrete floor. The wall frames are hardwood rails, and the cladding is corrugated iron. The chimney is made of rivetted steel (compare with Stokes in KNP).
