KOSCIUSZKO HUTS ASSOCIATION

Located just outside the southern boundary of the King William National Park in North Eastern Tasmania.

 

Brief History

This is a pure bushwalking lodge, built by Ken Letona, a Tasmanian architect, following his success with Cradle Huts Pty Ltd, a company that was invited by the Tasmanian Government to build a set of commercial huts through Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park.

Ken's company offers a four day walk down the Tasmanian coast, in an area of supreme beauty and remoteness. This hut is shown, to indicate the progressive way in which Tasmania encourages bushwalking for a wide range of people, with varying capabilities.

The Lodge was built in about 1998, and has won a number of State and National architectural awards. It is run in a fully environmental manner - ALL waste is removed from the site.
