Hunters Hut | Mt Richmond Forest Park

A well sited, comfortable hut built to replace the Bush Edge Hut which was tragically washed away with the loss of two DOC goat shooters, Russell Griebel and Bob Waldie, in a flash flood in February 1995.

Somehow when a hut has a big table with seating and decent windows to look out at a view it seems your standard tramper has hit the jackpot.

Note that the camping spots around the hut are not particularly level, and near impossible to get a tent peg into the ground. Porters Creek has better options if you want a night in a tent.
