Subject to change due to mountain weather, the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service has given a timetable for hut rebuilds(as at June 2022).

Sawyer's covered in snow

After some challenging mountain weather NSW Parks staff and 5 volunteers have nearly completed the Rest House at Sawyers Hill. With heavy snowfalls recently, the builders hope to get back to complete chimney and roof when the weather improves.

delanys hut reopening

Watch the video of the re-opening of the newly rebuilt Delanys Hut. The new hut uses a number of fire protection features like a sprinkler system and fire-retardant timbers to protect the hut from future bushfires. Image and video produced by Tom’s Outdoors.

Woodskills is a weekend KHA camping event run once every two years, demonstrating colonial timbercraft and carpentry. Held at the Kellett family’s property in Wee Jasper, it’s run by volunteers for members, interested staff from NSW NPWS and ACT Parks and Conservation Service, and for Wee Jasper locals.

Burnt demandering

The Canberra Times reported that the ACT Government intends to replace both Demandering Hut and Max and Berts Hut; both of which were lost in the 2019-2020 bushfires.  What The Canberra Times DID NOT report was that this replacement would only proceed if the results of the community survey were positive.
