Also known as Diana or Orange Hut.

Brief History

The hut was built by the SMA as a survey shelter in the early 1950's. It used to be painted (sensibly) a bright orange colour, but this has varied over the years.

Dicky Cooper hut stood across the creek, nearby, but is now hard to find as it has collapsed in the scrub.

Construction

Diane was a 5m by 3m and is built of weatherboards over a timber frame. It had a corrugated iron roof and was lined. There was one window, a wooden floor and stove.
