Barossa area - home to early German settlers.

Beginning with the Herbig Family Tree - which is still standing & is estimated to be
about 400 years old. Friederich Herbig began establishing his rough but cosy home in
1855. He continued living in the tree for 3 years then married in 1858. They continued
living in the tree with the first 2 of their 16 children. By 1860 a 3rd child was
on the way, they decided to build a pine & pug hut followed a stone cottage at a later
date as their family increased.

I have started a new gallery, see here
