Wallace Hut

Image Code: ALP002

Wallace’s Hut, is Australia’s oldest standing cattleman’s hut built in 1889. Wallaces Hut is situated in an extremely photographic Snow Gum grove on the Bogong High Plains. I have had the pleasure of shooting Wallaces Hut on a number of occasions, and it still sends a shiver up my spine. Surrounded by twisted and gnarled snow gums it’s easy to imagine the sound of the crack of a stock whip and the hooves of hardy mountain cattle and hardier mountain men. It’s a remarkable place, that I’m sure could tell a story or two over the years.
