Brief History

Schlink was built in 1960-61 by the SMA as a major location for powerline maintenance, road building and storage. It was named for its size and its location.

At various times, the rear (east) end of the hut has been closed to the public, for no good apparent reason. While it was opened for about two years in the early 2000's, it is now closed again.

A magnificent pump-out toilet has also been built nearby, in a position that makes photographing the hut from the road, more difficult.

Construction

Schlink is 14m by 7m with eleven rooms. The walls are of fibro and the roof of iron. The floor is of wood and the interior is lined with masonite. There are 14 windows and an outside toilet.
