A nostalgia moment! Here is Cool Plain Hut photographed in 1984.

The hut, now a ruin, was in a remote corner of Kosciuszko National Park, west of Round Mountain and near a tributary of Ogilvies Creek.

Visitors to the hut recall that someone with a sense of humour had installed a switch at the door with a sign asking you to turn off the light before you left.

The knee-high grasses and wildflowers that surround the hut in this photo are part of what makes Kosciuszko so special.
