Old Hume Sawmill video - Brindabella

Out along Dr's Flat road in Brindabella National Park is a small sign saying 'Hume Sawmill 1949'.

I have driven past this sign many times often wondering what it led to. Wonder no more.

Literally a few metres behind the sign in the overgrown scrub is the remnants of an old bush sawmill complete with the bullet hole ridden shell of a 1930's vintage utility/truck.

It's a small area of discarded ruin and difficult to imagine how it would have operated from the archaeology left rusting. I took a bit of video. From another era...
