The huts in the high country were built by stockmen, prospectors, recreational fishermen, skiers and the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Authority to meet their accommodation, shelter, recreational and hydrology needs at the time. Many of these huts have been lost through fire and decay, but around120 of them still remain. These are now cared for co-operatively by KHA and the Park Services.
Various collections of documents and photos:
KHA records up to 2009
KHA photographic collection
Frank Leydon photo collection
Herbert Schlink collection
Namadgi oral history project
Mark Hallam sent two collections of photos, Brayshaws Hut in Namadgi National Park and a large collection of photos from a February 1985 workparty at Harris Hut, KNP.
Sadly the hut was burnt in the late 1990s. The workparty was conducted by the caretakers, the Canberra Speleological Society who invited Mick and Phyllis Dowling.
