Baz - The Landy

Photos and Story: Baz - The Landy

Kylie's Hut, Crowdy Bay, Coastal Australia.

It is here that Australian fiction writer Kylie Tennant penned the novel "Man on the Headland", a wonderful story in which she portrays Crowdy Bay and the man who built her the hut, Ernie Metcalfe.

Many of Kylie's novels bordered on documentaries and she wrote in a way that sought to bring attention to her readers about poverty and disadvantage. Something that resonates well with many Australian’s.

Kylie died in 1988.

Situated to the north of Newcastle, Crowdy Bay is a scenic coastal locality that is well worth a stop over, a place where you might be equally inspired as Kylie – I’m sure you will be!

Just in case you were wondering “Baz – The Landy” came about as a consequence of owning three Land Rover Defenders, but as you can see this has now changed...

And yes, thank you, I've recovered fully from the experience!

But “Baz – The Landy” reference has stuck...!

Cheers, Baz – The Landy, Outback Australia…
“Those who don’t think
it can be done shouldn’t
bother the person doing it…”
