Linesmans No.3 Hut

Located on top of the very exposed ridge just above Bradleys Hut just off the Cabramurra Rd.

This and the nearby hut were destroyed in the 2020 bushfires.

Also Known as Fifteen Mile or Emu Plain.

Brief History

There are two huts in this location, built by the SMA for powerline maintenance. One was built in 1950s and the other in the 1980s.

While they are supposed to be moved, they are a very popular XC ski destination.

One is on a sled, and may have been moved from 263131, 257134 and 262132.

There is a fantastic view from here to Jagungal.

In 1999, a report on the condition of both No's. 3 & 4, was prepared by KHA members prior to extensive maintenance being performed. Members can download the report from the following link:

Report on the condition of the Linesman's huts on the Fifteen Mile Spur

The huts were destroyed in the January 2020 bushfires.


They are 3.5 by 2m and 3.5 by 2.3m in size and built as modular units. One used to have a welcome stove, but that is now gone. The huts are weatherboard over timber, with corrugated iron roofs and lined with masonite. Each has a wooden floor.
