GEEHI HUT - Acrylic on Canvas 1200 x 950mm

Also known as Airstrip or Nankervis Hut.

Brief History

This hut was built in 1952 by the Jim Nankervis and his brother, originally to support grazing and fishing. A shelter, toilet, shed and laundry also stood nearby, the last two being removed recently.

Tyrells was moved to the east of this site in 1926 and renovated for fishing in 1949, but the hut has now lost its vertical slabs.

Access can now be made to this stone hut in a regular sedan. Excellent camping can be had nearby for an almost unlimited number of tents.

In 2004, the hut was rebuilt by KHA with assistance from NPWS day-labourers and the Caretakers, the Land Rover Club of NSW and the Range Rover Club of Sydney. It was officially re-opened at 2pm Sunday 3 October, 2004 with members of the Nankervis family present.

Construction

The hut is large at 11m by 9m with three rooms. It is built of river stones over a concrete and dirt floor, as is the chimney and fireplace

Raised in the Southern Highlands Of NSW growing up each year my brothers and I would be bundled into our parents VW beetle at 4am for our annual one day trip to the Snowy Mountains. I fell in love with the textures, the temperature, the landscape and beauty of the Alpine region and later spent some seasons working as a snowboard instructor amongst many other jobs I had to do for the privilege of living on the Mountain in Thredbo. Many years have passed but the impression and culture are deeply ingrained within me.
