Lake Emma hut

An historic corrugated iron hut on the shoreline of Lake Emma. The hut is thought to date from the 1880s, and its purpose is unclear. The hut has a coal range, a tack room, and historic evidence of a vegetable garden. Signatures on the walls of the hut date as far back as 1886.

The hut is managed as an historic site with no overnight accommodation. The chimney and bed sacking have been removed.
