Walking tour of Little Garie shack community
You will be met at Garie beach car park at 10 am and be guided on a short walk along the cliff-line beside the beach to Little Garie community. There shacks will be open, and the owners will show you the interiors, with treasured items dating to the 1930s depression when most of the shacks were built. These are simple shack structures as all the materials have to be carried to the site. Some shacks retain the technology of the past with kerosene lamps and fridges. You will hear how the community fought to save their shacks when former government policies would have seen them destroyed. A BBQ sausage sizzle lunch will be provided.
