Built by a reclusive cattle farmer, this timber slab hut in the headlands of Crowdy Bay National Park served as a writer’s retreat for the Australian author Kathleen “Kylie” Tennant.
During World War II, Tennant and her husband Lewis Rodd moved to Laurieton, a small town on the mid-north coast of New South Wales. There she befriended Ernie Metcalfe, a cattle farmer and fisherman who built the hut for her to write in. The surrounding landscape became the setting for her 1971 novel The Man on the Headland, and Ernie Metcalfe its main character.
