Hospital Creek 92

Locating Hospital Creek is quite difficult, but is near that creek! Follow the same road from the Yankee Hat car park, past the turn off to Franks Hut, and continue up the hill. An indistinct path leads off to the left, right from a sharp right hand corner. The track to the hut used to allow vehicles, but is now quite overgrown. The hut is about one kilometre into the valley.

The hut is on the Yaouk 1:25000 map.

Also known as Franks or Franks Wartime.

Franks Hut is a small weatherboard cottage located beside the old pine forest (much of it now removed) between the Yankee Hat carpark and Mt Gudgenby.

 Not actually in Namadgi Nationla Park ,but it is in the ACT.

Location: This hut was on the Laurel Camp Road, Pierces Creek Forest.

Lutons Crutching Shed is almost on the southern boarder with NSW and is at 756333 on the Tantangara 1:100,000 map. It is a good day walk up a grassy valley, with options to climb nearby peaks for the energetic.

This hut was burnt down in the January 2003 bush fires, being the single most significant cultural heritage loss in these fires for Namadgi. It was replaced by a large corrugated iron interpretive shelter.
