Barcroft Boake: a poet, was born in Sydney, NSW, in 1866. His father was a photographer who had migrat- ed from Ireland. Boake began working as a surveyor’s assistant in the Snowy River country in 1886. After this he became a boundary rider and drover on a cattle station. Despite his obvious love of the bush, in 1891 he returned to Sydney to sort family problems. Unfortunately these personal and financial problems became too much for him and, as a result, on 2 May 1892, he disappeared from home. Eight days later his body was found, at Folly Point in the Middle Harbour scrub, hanging by the neck from a stockwhip. Boake published poems such as Where the Dead Men Lie.

Cleve Cole: a Victorian skiing pioneer, is remembered by alpine campers via the stone hut that bears his name, sited on Mount Bogong at the top of Camp Valley, two minutes walk from Camp Creek. The hut is dedicated to the first winter ascent of Mount Bogong by Cleve Cole in August 1928. Cleve Cole was to die in the winter of 1936 after being trapped on the same mountain. Malcolm McColl, the hut’s architect, designed the building in 1936 and construction began in February 1937 using materials hauled up the mountain by packhorses.
