Hacket Hut

Mount Richmond Forest Park

This 6 bunk hut lies on the western edge of Mt Richmond Forest Park and is only 1½ hours walk from the Aniseed Valley. The hut has a wood burner and water is taken from the nearby Hacket Creek. Bed layout is in 3 separate bunks and there is no seating available. Unfortunately this hut has a bit of a wasp problem. A great place for a family tramping trip (if your not allergic to wasps!).

To: Starveall Hut (4.5hrs) Browning Hut (1hr) Roebuck Hut (5hrs)
