As part of Illawarra Stories, Wollongong City Libraries are now making oral histories of owners of shacks in the Royal National Park available online. The shacks and their communities have a fascinating history from people staying in the Depression era to generations who have enjoyed holidays there. These podcasts can be downloaded so others can listen to memories of how the shacks were built and experiences of fishing, surfing, dances, bonfires, storms and bushfires.

When: This podcast will be available from Saturday 2 September 2017, 9:00am

Cost: Free
