Brief History

Built with no expense spared in 2000/01. The land was originally owned by Kore Grunnsund who bought it from the Flanagans in 1979. A consortium of two Melb, one Sydney lawyers and John Morrell bought the property from Grunnsund in 1992. They granted Grunnsund the right to continue to use his original hut "Katingal" for as long as he wished.

Directly below the new hut the owners have rebuilt an old footbridge across Bulls Peak Ck using part of the frame from Grunnsund's old caravan that burnt down in 2003.
