10 Historic Huts of Tantangara - Kosciuszko National Park

10 Historic Huts of Tantangara - Kosciuszko National Park

The huts in Kosciuszko National Park are an important part of Australia's cultural heritage. Many of the huts were built in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The huts were built for and used by cattlemen, miners, the Snowy Mountains Authority and other workers. Today, the huts still have an important historical significance and are visited by hikers, skiers and other outdoor enthusiasts. The Tantangara area is home to many of these huts, ranging from small basic shelters to larger homestead style dwellings.

Each individual hut has its own story and significance in the history of the Snowy Mountains and their role in history continues as they are visited by outdoor enthusiasts exploring the mountains. A worthy mention goes to the Kosciuszko Huts Association and NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service for keeping the magic of these high country huts alive.
