Namadgi National Park Huts

Situated in the Orroral Valley, this homestead is a short walk from the Orroral Road. 

The Tennent homestead is about three kms to the west of the Namadgi Visitors Centre, and just inside the later extension to the NP.

All buildings except one, were burnt down in the 2003 bushfires.

rendezvous ck 90Rendezvous Creek hut is accessible by a walking track of about five kilometres, commencing 500m before the narrow concrete bridge (to the old Bobeyan Rd) on the Adaminaby road. The path across open fields and is hot in summer but shaded at the hut. It is shown on the Rendezvous Ck map.

This hut was burnt down in 2003, by persons unknown. Circumstances indicate that it may have been done deliberately by pig shooters, however police investigations were inconclusive. Namadgi NP management have refused point-blank to allow KHA to rebuild the hut at our expense.

Located in a very remote part of the Booth Range, Namadgi National Park. Shown on the Colinton map. Access is usually made from the Boboyan road, on a compass bearing.

Its name stems from the boggy area around, and the general cold and damp of the area during winter.

Waterhole is located upstream on Grassy Creek, from Westermans homestead, almost on the southern ACT border with NSW. It cannot be seen from the fire trail, so following the creek upstream from the old yards, is the easiest way to find it.

Waterhole Hut is on the Namadgi Historic Homestad Triangle. View the brochure here.

Also known as Upper Grassy Creek Hut or Oldfields Hut.

Slalom 91Slalom Hut is quite hard to find, but is at Grid Reference 611713 on the Tidbinbilla 1:25,000 map.

To find the hut, walk to the summit of the hill near this grid reference, and look for a cleared, but now somewhat overgrown, ski run heading straight down hill. You can confirm this by locating a 1920's Ford car at the top of the run (used to drive a rope ski tow). Walk about 300m down the run to its finish and turn hard right, about 80m into the trees. The hut is here, facing east.

Westermans is located 1.5 kilometres over a rise, on the path immediately adjacent to the border with NSW. The start is marked by a metal stile over the fence. It is shown on the Tantangara 1:100,000 map.
