KOSCIUSZKO HUTS ASSOCIATION

Also known as The Hobart Walking Club Ski hut.

 

Luckmans was named after Leo Luckman, also of "Luckman's Lead on the way to Federation Peak" fame. Roy Davies and other HWC members were instrumental in its restoration in the early 1970s, although the ski run nearby is no longer used.

The hut was built by various people from the Hobart Walking Club, and is about 200m below the road, and about two kilometres from the summit of Mt Wellington.

Beside the hut, is a cleared, but rough, and none too demanding ski run, also built by the club, when thirty feet of snow was common each winter.

Leo's wife, Jessie survives him today, at age 93.
