Kirwans hut

Victoria Forest Park

Perched up near a ridge top this hut location commands good views to the south and west. This popular hut is near the site of an old miners hut of which some evidence remains. The whole surrounding area is rich in goldmining history. The benched track to Kirwans hut is a legacy from the mining days.
