Tin Hut Central Plateau

Tin Hut is a single roomed hut believed to have been built by mountain cattlemen Reg Dixon and Reg Bernes either in the late 1930s or early 1940s. The Hut has seen better times and these days is little more than a corrugated iron shell attached to a timber frame on a stone foundation. The roof is intact but the original single window is covered over and the chimney has collapsed.  A pile of stones indicates where the fireplace and chimney were once located. From the Hut’s entrance, on the eastern end of the hut, Lakes Ada and Augusta can be seen in the distance, with Tin Hut Lake out of view and behind the hill which shelters the Hut. In late December/early January the area hosts a magnificent display of Richea Scoparia.
