Also known as Spencers Peak Hut

Brief History

Moulds was built by RG Mould in 1930.

Moulds was one of two huts deliberately destroyed by fire, by NPWS officers in 1977, after a mis-interpretation of the policy at the time.

A request to be allowed to re-build the hut, was denied by the NPWS in 1978.

The toilet still stands!
