A Writer’s Retreat

 Kylie TennantKylie’s Hut, Crowdy Bay, Coastal Australia.

It is here that Australian fiction writer Kylie Tennant penned the novel Man on the Headland, a wonderful story in which she portrays Crowdy Bay and the man who built her the hut, Ernie Metcalfe.

Many of Kylie’s novels bordered on documentaries and she wrote in a way that sought to bring attention to her readers about poverty and disadvantage.

She died in 1988.

    Baz-Man: this is awesome. You have this thing were you bring beauty and wildness together, and then put great words to it all. It’s good, Man. T

    Is the hut still in use?

      You can visit it and picnic in the area surrounding on a day use only basis. I must say, I haven’t been up that way for a while, so will do so in the next month or so.

      Such a beautiful coastal area, I’ll write something on it…

    Baz, what is the structure on the left side of the building?
