HOME OF THE LADY DENMAN - Local history isn't always about the big story - the everyday story of life in the early development of the region can be a fascinating, entertaining and educational journey.

First permanent dwelling at Callala Beach

 Canberra Times Friday 30 September 1955.
This was one of the advertisements promoting the sale of land at Callala in 1955.

1956 - This was the first building at Callala Beach,  situated in Quay Road built by one of my relatives,  Cliff Brown.
The whole area had been extensively cleared.  In those days the water supply came from crystal clear ground water drawn to the surface via a spear point and pump.
Our water was from around 40ft below the surface.



This photograph shows the rescue helicopter after it landed in front of Cliff’s house in 1956.
