A whiteout is an occupational hazard for ski tourers on the Main Range. While low cloud and reduced visibility may occur at any time of the year, it is during winter with a blanket of freshly fallen snow covering the mountains, that the true whiteout is experienced.

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.

Harry Hill: Beware of bush tucker

botanical drawing of the hemlock poisonous plant

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.
