KOSCIUSZKO HUTS ASSOCIATION

Hydrographers Hut is located east of Lake Ellen in the Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park.

Also known as Hydro Hut

Brief History

It is the last surviving HEC Hydrographers Hut in Tasmanian National Parks. Despite being painted in camouflage patterns, it sticks out like a sore thumb from some angles.

Another one at Lake Bill burnt down in a bushfire that started near Basil Steers' old hut at the start of the track into Lees Paddocks.

Condition is reasonable, as at March 2011.
