  1. Stayed at Webb Gap 28/07/2020 – Steep climb to this bush campsite from either direction, it is situated close to the top, just off the trail. Keep your eyes open for the stile as the tank is not easy to spot from the road. This site has some challenges; the ground is sloping in most places, areas of ground are rocky and very hard, and the multi-purpose platform is in disrepair. But the water tank was full of good water, the camp is mostly in in the lee of the prevailing wind, and watching dawn from this site is a real treat. Note that prior recent users of Webb gap have not dug adequate cat holes, and much too close to the water tank. Take care when choosing where to pitch your tent, and remember to dig your cat holes well away from the camping area and waterways.

  2. 17 July 2020 – Walker reported the tank level as ‘nearly at the top of the tank’.

  3. Campsite is miss located on the map (map sheet 3C). Actual location is at the highest point of road on the northern side. Basically right where Webb Gap is printed on map.

  4. Nice spot that I stopped through on 5 June. Not too many level spots for tents. Looked to be a newish multi-use platform which is great. Water tank at least 30%.

  5. 2/10/15. I left Huppatz hut at dawn, as the forecast was for a warm day. Got to this site early, them waited until 3.30 before moving on.
    I had noted an entry in the HHut logbook, of a lady who said there was no water tank at Webb gap.
    Very odd. But , she wad coming from the south and the map shows the site to be before one climbs up to the gap. I was expecting it there as well.
    However, when I reached the top, I did see a stile, which was unmarked. I thought it might be for another ridge top trail. I only checked to make sure the HT did not go on the other side of the fence. It was only once I was over that I suddenly noticed what looked like corrugated iron. It was the camp site. The lady in the log had camped at the bottom of the hill and drank dam water!!
