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.

Old Huskisson

A large and busy timber mill once stood close to the banks of Currambene Creek. Timber was drawn from all over the district and helped service the timber ship building industry.  We often think how quiet the township of Huskisson must have been in the early days,  but,  with a steady flow of ships being built, bullock teams draging tons of timber to the wharf to be loaded onto waiting ships and the mills large saw cutting logs into planks, it seems it might not have been as quiet as you may think.
