They are accessible by vehicle in summer from a turn-off just down the road from Bradleys Hut.

Also known as Black Jack Fire Tower huts.

Brief History

The huts were built in 1973 by the Hume-Snowy Bushfire Council, to support the fire tower watchers. Related sheds and huts have been removed, leaving just two in place.

The main hut is now open to the public and in good condition. Being at high altitude, it is subject to the worst weather, but the view is spectacular.

Construction

The main building is 8m by 4m, with weatherboards and an iron roof. It is lined. There is a wooden floor, and some furniture, but no fireplace. There is also an external shed (locked) and toilet.
