Namadgi National Park Historic Huts Conservation and Interpretive Trail: significance of site

Brayshaws Hut was built in 1903 by Edward Brayshaw, originally for grazing purposes but was later converted to a shearing shed.

Westerman's Homestead was built in 1916 by Bruce Jeffrey for grazing, replacing a small mud brick house. It now consists of five rooms, famous for its scalloped bargeboards and solid stone chimneys.

Waterhole Hut was built by Jack and Henry Tyrie in 1939, again for grazing purposes. The hut is made of iron and had a timber floor.

These three historic homesteads are located within close proximity to each other in Namadgi National Park, and are on the National Heritage List as part of the Australian Alps National Parks and Reserves.
