Selwyn area in Kosciuszko National Park
Wolgal Hut is closed because of severe damage from bushfires.
Wolgal Hut, in the subalpine district of Kiandra, is closed due to severe bushfire damage. Rich in history, the area around the hut was home to one of Australia’s shortest gold rushes and is considered the birthplace of skiing in Australia.
Before it closed, this historic hut made a great base for exploring the high country of the Australian Alps in Kosciuszko National Park.
