Brief History

The original hut was built by the SMA for hydrologists and was very large (about 15m square) The small hut was used as a gauging station and was built in the 1950s. It was a weatherboard hut, 2.5m square with a pitched iron roof and wooden floor with bunk beds. Was destroyed in the 2003 fires.

There was no log book in this hut, so the frequency of visitation is not clear. ?The hut no longer exists.
