  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.

  4. Paused here for ‘morning smoke-o’ on 14th July ’19 on way to Aroona Campground. Nice and comfortable little hut that has bunk beds but non usable fireplace like Yanyanna Hut. Plenty of water in tank that is drinkable.

  5. 14 August 2019. Water smells and tastes good, however I recommend treating water before consuming. Tank is at approximately 35% capacity.
