Built by pioneers in the ranges that dominate Canberra’s landscape these huts are more than just landmarks. For some the landscape was the summer hunting ground of their ancestors, for others it is the catchment that guarantees water for Australia’s national capital. These ranges echo with the stories about our alpine history, from the first settlers to space tracking stations that relayed live pictures of the moon landing. This documentary focuses on a story that captures the spirit of all of this: the story of the huts of the high country.
