Information

Alwin Vernon (Casey) Cooper was a professional fisherman who lived and worked here on the banks of Ral Ral Creek during the latter half of the 20th Century. In 1959 he brought Reach P8U1 from the junction of Hunchee and Ral Ral Creeks to the Lake Merreti inlet for £25. He built this whitewashed shack out of bags in 1962 after the original structure of 1958 decayed through flooding.
