A humpy, also known as a gunyah, is a small, temporary shelter, traditionally used by Australian Aboriginal people. These impermanent dwellings, made of branches and bark (particularly paperbark), are often built prior to the construction of more permanent buildings. They are sometimes called a lean-to, since they often rely on a standing tree for support.
