Our Objectives

Our aim is to progressively and carefully provide Latitude and Longitude positions for all standing huts. 

We publish this list so that all huts can be easily found, even in a white out, dark or fog. This has the potential to save distress, if not lives.

Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers are now so carried as a matter of course for many bushwalkers, drivers and skiers. Most mobile phones also include a GPS receiver, although these are not quite as accurate as a dedicated receiver.

We are progressively building the list below, but PLEASE read the disclaimer attached below.

The best known location for standing huts have been added to the Open Street Map (OSM).

(Data Last Updated 24 November, 2019).

Locations are in WGS 84

DISCLAIMERS:

Accuracy

(Please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have a more accurate location)

A comment field has been included to indicate the accuracy of the coordinates given.

Good - modern GPS reading, should be within 10 metres

Fair - coordinates from Google Earth, may be up to 50 metres error.

Poor - coordinates from topographic map reading, may be out by 500 metres. Hut may be marked incorrectly on published maps, coordinate system may not have been converted.

Accuracy aslo depends on the chip in your GPS Receiver. Newer chips have better accuracy and greater sensitivity than older ones. A Garmin Orogen series GPS will even give a reading indoors to less than 5 metres error.  A good reason to upgrade!

Vertical Accuracy will be 30m or more unless you have a barometer in your device. The barometer needs to be calibrated to either the air pressure or a known height on the day, or at least weekly to acheive an accuracy of approx. 3m.

 

Datums

The KHA committee is wary of the variations in readings - so there are no guarantees for accuracy! It is important that your GPS unit is set to the either the Geodetic Datum of Australian 1994 (GDA94) or the world Geodetic System 1984 (WGS84) These two systems are equivalent for all intents and purposes.

A new datum GDA2020 has been released, and is now required for all Australian maps. Our data has not yet been converted into this format, but as the differences are approx. 1.5 meters to GDA94 locations can be used with a resaonable degree of confidence.

Many older Australian maps use Australian Geodetic Datum (AGD) 66 or 84. Check your map for the datum before reading off a position using the grid. The difference is about 200m NE for a WGS position, over an old map reading.

Any errors in using different datums are your responsibility. Walkers and skiers MUST have other navigational skills before venturing into the bush, particularly in winter, the dark or both.

Most Australian maps still refer to AGD66 or 84. The difference is that GDA94 and WGS84 will lead you to the same spot if your GPS is set in WGS84, but will be 200 metres north east if you are applying the position to an old map.

By the way, the difference between the old AGD readings and new WGS readings are about 4mm on a 1:50,000 scale map. So now you know.
