Information

This is the last of the shacks that have been home to Cockle Collector for decades. At one times they were all painted many different colours, but in 1966 with the declaration of the National Park, all shacks were given life tenure and had to be painted a uniform Green colour to blend in with the surroundings.After the death of the owners the shacks have to be pulled down.
