  1. I passed by this hut on April 21st with Rover Scouts during the sixth day of hiking from where the trail crosses the Hawker-Parachilna Road to the Parachilna Gorge trailhead (7 days/125ish km.)

    The water tanks was 2/3 full.

    There are bunks inside for 4 people.

    The "fireplace" is actually taken up by a wood stove of some sort (ie. not so suitable for sitting around the fire having a chat.) There is a large fire circle outside.

    The fee paid by bushwalkers to use this hut is $5 per person per night. That does not include park entry for your car.

  2. Good sized water tank here, was about 3/4 full on 24/5/15. No fires allowed inside according to signs. If you’re tall the bunks will be a bit short. Good spots for tents.

  3. Lovely hut, warm inside as brick. Tank 3/4 full on 29/8/15. Reroute from Trezona in place due to eagle’s nest.
