Situated in a small forest clearing, above Louis Creek on an old miners’ track, is historic Booth's Cottage, built back in the 1930s.
This cottage was built by Sid Booth and Ray Clarke in 1933 during the Depression. Booth's Cottage was the family home of Sid and Eva Booth and their son Teddy for over 10 years.
