With the expansion of roads and bushwalking tracks through the Grampians during the 1920s and 30s, more people began to look for comfortable and relaxing holiday accommodation in the area.In response, Walter Zumstein built three pisé or rammed earth holiday cottages here in the 1930s, using soil excavated from the nearby swimming pool. The cottages were simply named Green, Blue and Orange - after the colour of the painted lintels over the doors and windows.Despite being quite basic, the cottages were very popular during the summer and Easter holidays, when they were always fully booked. Today, they are recognised on the Victorian Heritage Register as some of the very few pisé-style buildings using local materials from the early 20th century.
