KOSCIUSZKO HUTS ASSOCIATION

Located below the Cirque on the southern side of Cradle Mountain.

 

History

The original Waterfall Valley Hut was built in about 1952, very close to the position of the current hut. The new hut replaced the Cirque Hut, built about two kilometres to the south in an unsuitable position (it kept falling off the mountain).

The new hut was built in 1985 and was the first that utilised more energy efficient methods of construction, with solar heating, insulation, glazed windows etc.
