Lagoon Saddle Hut | Craigieburn Forest Park

Lagoon Saddle Hut is one of two structures in close proximity, not exactly sure why two shelters are needed. The hut is not quite so easy to find, you have to cross the creek and clamber up the hill.

DOC defines it as “basic” and you’d have to agree, it’s a windowless large garden shed, with a couple of mattress-less thanks and small bench. Not an enormous amount of amenity but then again if the weather is inclement it might just be the lifesaver.
