Full Description

Two icehouses, with grass-roofs, part of the fishing station at Dorlin. They are described as in poor condition
and much altered and are therefore not included in the listing. <1>

Photographs of the pair of icehouses were taken by K Cameron during a site visit in March 2007. Both grass-covered roofs appear to be in watertight condition. <2>
