Gudgenby Homestead

Completed 2013

The timber slabs of this interpretive shelter are built from the remnants of the original Gudgenby Homestead that sheltered pioneer families from 1845 to 1964, and had been placed in a storage container for many decades awaiting a rebirth. The design of the shelter pays homage to the vernacular form of the original hut through its corrugated iron roof and steel and timber structure. The design also incorporates rammed earth in reference to another common early settler building system.
