Fettlers Loop

Gazetted on 29 January 2016 (Folio 108). Fettlers Loop is a reference to the word fettlers. Fettlers were the low paid workers who lived/camped and worked near the railway lines surrounding the former Whitebridge Station. The small hut still present near the Whitebridge entrance to the Fernleigh Track is believed to be an old a fettlers hut.
