Shelter in an explorer’s hut in Barrington Tops

In Barrington Tops over 60 years ago, Newcastle Bushwalking Club built two explorer’s huts for hikers needing shelter, named after founding members: Selby Alley and Darby Munro. Suitable for intrepid & respectful overnight hikers only, find the huts and sleep in history. (Photo courtesy of Craig Fardell, check out his blog at A Wild Land. Donations are gratefully accepted by Newcastle Bushwalking Club for hut use, visit their website for more details.)
