  1. Stayed here 1 May 2022, at the new facilities. Plenty of shelter to get out of the wet and windy weather, two covered tables, a covered kitchen bench and cooking space, plus a USB charger. Water tanks are 5 x 5000 litres (approximately), and up to 70% full.

  2. Temporary site: Tank level at 60%. Tap has very slow drip. No flat ground to pitch. Very exposed site.
    I went past the old site and they have done so much work. Toilets/bridge/buildings etc. Not finished yet though.

  3. FoHT Trail Development Team visited this site on 10/5/21. Tank water level 50%.

  4. S2N E2E at temporary site on Tue 4 April.
    Great to have a picnic table and a large water tank. Better than some permanent sites in the Flinders. Lovely Water but only seemed about 200mm above the tap. Hopefully workers will keep it topped up!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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..?
