Wallace Hut, the oldest surviving cattleman’s hut of the Victorian high country is a solitary figure, hidden amongst the twisted snow gums of the isolated Bogong High Plains. Built in 1889 by the Wallace brothers, it provided an important refuge during the spring and summer months, as they tended to their cattle grazing on the rich grasses of the alpine meadows. Many years have now passed since the Wallace family first brought their cattle to the high country. In that time, super powers have risen and fallen, two world wars have been fought, yet this little hut, built from rough tools and a little bush knowledge remains.
