We recently published an article showcasing the High Camp Cabin, used by trekkers for shelter en route to Mt Anne in south west Tasmania. We’ve since been contacted by Chris Rathbone of the Hobart Walking Club. Chris supplied Think Tasmania with these amazing photos, and the equally amazing story of the cabin’s construction written by Roy Davies.

The article about the construction of the High Camp Memorial Cabin was written by chief protagonist Roy Davies. It was originally published in 1974 as part of the Hobart Walking Club’s 2-yearly publication, Tasmanian Tramp (Number 21, pages 68-70). The photos were all taken by Chris Rathbone, who is currently the web-master of the Hobart Walking Club’s website.
