  1. Stayed here 17April19 on first night of my thru-hike. Nice clean and comfortable facilities in a lovely spot. No mice seen in my visit. Hard to tell water tank level on the thick poly tank but seemed to be >25% full.

  2. Arrived at dusk after walking from Cape Jervis, lots of mice hanging around the hut so we pitched tent away from hut. Would be really good to have a drop toilet there.

  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.

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

    I am not sure if it is "legal"

  5. 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..?
