Connecting People, Places and the Past - A National Trust Heritage Festival event

 As part of the National Trust Heritage Festival, a walking tour of the Little Garie community took place in April 2019. 

Sunday April 28th 10 am 

Cost: Event is free but Park entry fee of $12 per car payable to NPWS applies

 The RNP Coastal Cabins Protection League takes part in the National Trust Heritage Festival every year so that members of the public can see how the shacks at this remote location were built and maintained by the owners. Hear the stories of how the shacks survived to be listed on the State Heritage Register in 2012.

Our simple beach shacks date to the 1930s Depression when people came to the coast to survive the hard times. Away from the mod cons of life, we built these shacks with low tech innovations of the times.

Meet the people and hear the stories - selected shacks will be open and a sausage sizzle lunch provided.

Tour starts from the Garie Beach Car Park (at the end of the Garie Road) at 10 am. You will be guided along a short cliff-side track (approx 10 minutes) to shacks that are open at the community. Bring water, sunscreen, swimming gear. 

Bookings are essential as numbers are limited. Royal National Park entry fee of $12 applies to enter the Park.
