The Blue Waterholes on the head of the Goodradigbee River, is one of my favourite spots in KNP. I've visited it at least 20 times to camp, fish, explore and especially to walk down the limestone gorge, criss-crossing the water course to have lunch at the waterfall. On one visit I found that a Park Ranger had collected a group of about ten visitors to lead them on a conducted walk. I knew the ranger and she asked me to join the group - we could both give the commentary.
Westerman's Hut was sadly in need of a paint until a group of 12 KHA members got together from 25th to 29 October and gave it some tender loving care.
Jane and Jack Palmer, Simon Buckpitt, Mike Baker, John Woodward, John Allen, Marg, Narelle Irvine, Kevin and Patsy McCaskie, Helen McAuley, Barbara Seymour and Alf Sinfield responded to Bob Salijevic's (HMO Namadgi) email request for workers, and collectively managed to make the hut look fresh, protected and cared for.
Last year, 2013, KHA purchased a replacement pot bellied stove for Tin Hut, the old one had well and truly had it after many decades of service.
NPWS kindly flew the new one in and installed it for us.
Recently Martin enjoyed the new stove's hospitality and kindly send in a couple of photos so we could all share the warmth!
Thank you Martin.
KHA Friend Matthew Higgins sent us a link to a fine video featuring our hut of the high country.
A friend of our huts sent this excellent photo of an enthusiastic member of the public keen to experience our high country heritage during Snowpocalypse 2014!
