The Bogong High Plains were first documented by stockriders in 1851 who were enthusiastic about their new found homeland, and keen to take advantage of the perceived benefits of grazing cattle on the nearby High Country.
The Bogong High Plains became a popular summer grazing destination and many cattlemen’s huts are still evident on the High Plains. One of the more famous is Wallace’s Hut near Falls Creek, built in 1889 from snow gum slabs and woollybutt shingles, this timeworn cattlemen's hut is thought to be the oldest in the High Plains.
