Adavale Veterans Retreat was originally conceived by a small group of Veterans who purchased an acre plot of land with an old, dilapidated, derelict, corrugated iron hut on it, which had been built nearly 100 years ago, to use as an escape for themselves.

The Hut (a.k.a The Elliot's)
This little building was home to many families over the past 80 or so years.
The most notable being the Elliot Family, who bought up five children here.
The Hut has two bedrooms, lounge, "air-conditioned" kitchen (no back wall).
Little or no milled timber was used in the framework under the corrugated iron - timbers used were Gidyea & Lapunya both renowned for termite resistance.
The Hut was named and owned by a group of Vietnam Veterans and used as a retreat. The Vets restored the building keeping it as near as possible to its original state.
The Hut and surrounding properties were generously donated to Adavale Veterans Retreat Inc in 2020.
