  1. The national parks info seems pretty adamant that fires are prohibited at Eagle Waterhole, yet you say here that there is a fireplace – is the fireplace in the hut or..?

  2. ASs I recall there are probably areas where people have lit fires.

    I am not sure if it is "legal"

  3. Stayed overnight here while hiking from Cape Jervis to Tapanappa with Aesir Rover Crew.

    There was no visible fireplace and this large sign sends a pretty clear message.

    The hut is quite different to others I have stayed in, having no door and being quite "open". The very large water tank provides ample water, but the omission of a toilet is unfortunate.

    The hut could use some hooks for hanging wet gear.

    Additionally, I would recommend the safety of the bunks be looked into. The top bunks have quite low rails. With the addition of a thermarest they become even lower. It should be investigated what safety requirements are legally required for bunk beds. Unfortunately I forgot to take photos.
