Anybody know the history of this hut? got few cool pics of it unsure how to upload. Cool old hut although I'd rather sleep outside it😂 only a short stroll from carpark really. nice place to take family for bush walk or whatnot

Hi Kane, I don't know anything about the history but I must say the walk along the old overgrown tramway once you turn off the main track was enjoyable. I didn't have a GPS with me but I found the hut tucked away in the bush eventually. I used the landmarks from WAMS to find it once I made my way out into the large open areas. It's pretty grotty inside & I won't want to stay there either. I signed the hut when I left.

Stumbled upon this hut a few years back, returned to stay last year. It would make a good do-up project.

Weird, I thought the cullers hunts were removed in the 1990s

I believe it was built in the mid 1950's by a father and a couple of sons for private use .It is not an old cullers hut .
