MACKAYS HUT - Acrylic on Canvas 910mm x 910mm
Mackays was built in 1944-5 by Norm and Sam Mackey for grazing. Their lease was ultimately revoked in 1958. The site was first visited by Dr Herbert Schlink in 1926 with Bill and Bob Hughes and a bunch of other horsemen. They camped at the site, where a rough granite fireplace existed - was there another hut hereabouts before?

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.
