Hearty appreciation to all those who contributed to this project. I wish I could have been in a position to be a part of it. Reading some of the hut book entries I recognised a few old mates from a ways back.
The wanted poster about the cook deserter is a classic. Those musterers must have been really P--off.
Thanks so much for posting the record Alan, and thanks to the blokes, businesses and land holders who worked so hard to restore and preserve the history. Smiley

Our next Restoration Trip will be from the 9 th to 13th January .

The remaining window has been restored and will be returning and installed , over 60 hours has been spent to date on restoring the 2 windows and making new frames .

New timber roof barges will be fitted along with the numerous  flashings currently on site .

We will start on the interior , build new work bench , new slab wall shelving , restore the old table that featured in Simons post and new slab seating , rebuild the bunks using the original timber salvaged and set aside . build new stone fireplace .

We will also build seating around a existing outside fire place .

It is going to be another full on trip and i will write a report after our return .

Safe hunting and hot barrels over the xmas break .    Murray.N
