Dun Mountain shelter | (almost) Mt Richmond Forest Park

The Dun Mountain Shelter is an emergency shelter for when the weather turns particularly bad rather than a hut.

The shelter isn’t in particularly good condition, not insulated, the toilet leaves a lot to be desired, the council seems to have forgotten this place exists.
