Brief History

Blowhard hut was originally built for tourism, by the Victorian Tourist Board. As time went by, skiing became a greater passion and it was converted for this use.

Today, the hut is locked, and was not mentioned in the Butler Consultancy. It is undergoing some renovation and extension in 2003.

Construction

Built with corrugated iron walls and roof. The roof has a high gable and an unusually large skillion. Extended in the 1980s.
