This hut is made from horizontal slabs of wood[46], with the roof and floor having been upgraded over the years. There is a wooden sleeping platform[47] and fireplace[48] inside. There is good camping around the hut, with flat fields, a large fire scar with bench seating[49], a toilet[50] and plenty of brumbies[51] to add interest.
