High country huts and homesteads – built by stockmen, prospectors, skiers, recreational fishing people and the Snowy Mountain Hydro-electric Authority – are now recognised as important NSW heritage structures. They are also strikingly beautiful pieces of history dotted throughout the alpine landscape of Kosciuszko National Park, Brindabella National Park, and Bimberi Nature Reserve. Each one of them is unique. Many of these historic huts have only survived decay because of efforts by Kosciuszko Huts Association (KHA). Volunteer to be part of this ongoing, successful conservation work.
KHA is always open to new members who have an interest in historic huts restoration and maintenance. The organisation is even quite historic itself, having been formed back in 1971. Huts are now cared for cooperatively by KHA and NSW National Parks. Annual registration fees are heavily reduced for members who attend working days or events.
