Wow! Thanks for sharing the old photos 'Bon' awesome pictures, I have never seen a photo of the old Fidget Hut, theres nothing much left there now, i was crawling around there a month or so ago looking for the hut site. The remains are all covered by Briar... but you can still see the piles of stones and the old swim dip. We got a lot of photos off Les and Edna Roberts which we keep in an album. The more recent pictures are great as well, a few familiar faces there!

Also do you really have a picture of the old Ravine hut? And a few years ago when we had a fire we unearthed an old hut/camp site in a place called smokers hole, its not far from the Muzzle/Bluff homestead before the Cow Creek hut which still stands with its old stone chimney. There was an old fireplace with stones and roofing iron and a camp oven etc. It was beside a stand of willows in a gully. No one else can remember anything about it. Anymore stories would be great if you have the time....

Wow, I was in there a few weekends back across the Clarence, on the other station that backs onto the muzzle. Awesome place. Luckily we didnt need Roaring Meg to get us across the river  Grin
  

If it is there, It's there to be climbed !

I had no idea you had such nice legs rick.
  

It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

Good to see the airstrip is still in good nick (Quail).
Hope to go for a tiki-tour through there one day if it remains open....

Not a part of our great country I know much about, but one that's really interesting.  Cool to get a look into the history here.  Smiley
