Godden Mackay Logan Pty Ltd (GML) was engaged by the National Trust of Australia (WA) to prepare a cultural heritage assessment of the shack settlements at Wedge and Grey, north of \Perth, Western Australia. There are approximately 320 shacks at Wedge and Grey that were constructed in the 1950s to the early 1990s. In 1989 the WA government introduced the Illegal Occupation of Coastal Crown Land (Squatters) policy to stop construction of new shacks, and some 678 shacks were removed from north of Wedge and Grey. This report assesses the cultural heritage values of the remaining shacks.
Report prepared in collaboration with Context Pty Ltd for the National Trust of Australia (WA).
