Travelling over the Snowy Mountains on our trip around Australia in 2010 we stopped at this mountain hut. It was late afternoon and we were looking for some where to stay the night. These huts are provided for travellers and mainly for trampers and skiers in the winter. We went over for a closer look at the door.
This looked promising so we went inside and saw this notice on the wall.
So we decided to stay the night. Jack collected some fire wood.
After setting our bed up in Matilda we relaxed for a while.
As the sun set and a chill crept into the air we went into the hut and closed the door.
It was a very basic abode but when Jack lit the fire it soon warmed up.
I cooked toast over the flames to go with the baked beans I am heating in the saucepan.
Then it was time to relax with a glass of wine in front of the fire for a while.
As the fire died down to embers and the moon rose we went out to our comfortable bed in Matilda. Making sure we shut the door behind us…
In the year we travelled around Australia we stayed overnight in many different places, but this would be one of the highlights.
