The Kosciuszko Huts Association (KHA) is a voluntary organisation formed in 1971 to assist with the conservation, management and reconstruction of huts, homesteads and surrounds within Kosciuszko National Park (KNP) in southern NSW. Our activities expanded into Namadgi National Park (NNP) in the ACT in 1990.
Over the past forty two years KHA has carried out maintenance activities on most of the 90 or so remaining huts and homesteads in KNP and NPP. A network of caretakers, both groups and individuals, make annual inspection visits to their allocated hut or huts to document the material state of the hut and to develop work plans. They also undertake small repairs as needed.
The caretaker network is managed by KHA, with KHA providing the liaison between the caretakers and state and territory land management agencies.
The objectives of KHA
The NSW Government requires KHA volunteers working in the park, to indemnify it against any third party legal action resulting from KHA's activities. KHA has obtained insurance cover for the benefit of members and pays for it though membership fees.
Financial KHA members are welcome to attend hut workparties. For upcoming workparties, please check the calendar, or contact the relevant Hut Maintenance Officer (HMO). Email address can be found on the Contacts page.
