Trevor Clement sent in this report on their recent workparty at Frank & Jack's Hut in Namadgi National Park

Wind damage to Old Currango Homestead - Feb 2017

Photo of wind damage to roof of Old Currango Homestead 11th february 2017On Saturday evening, 11th March, a wind storm hit the Currango area bringing down trees & damaging Old Currango.

* Three sheets of iron on northern verandah have completely gone

* Two sheets of iron on north-east corner of verandah have gone exposing old original shingles

* Chimney upright posts have been snapped off at the ground causing the chimney to collapse and making it unsafe.

 Of major concern is three 3 metre lengths of iron have gone to the wind from the main north-west roof over small bedroom, exposing large area of original shingles, a large number of which have unfortunately been lost. The whole main part of the roof including shingles, was also forced up and lifted.
