Caretaker report: CSIRO Rabbit Research Hut


csiro 2 omoon 08102004

The purpose of our recent visit to the hut was to complete a visual inspection of the hut and to carry out a general tidy up in and around the hut.

I can report that the hut is obviously well cared for by visitors and that there was very little build up of tree fall around the building.

Of concern is the water which is entering the ceiling space above the front door.The stain is obvious but what is of real concern is the damage being done to the ceiling.

This is starting to sag and will in time cause a panel to drop.It is our intention to return in spring and fill the gap in the flashing ,which most likely, is to blame.

Not many people visit this hut but those that do express their appreciation for this little hut in the woods.

Regards

Building Cootapatamba Hut


From Artur Baumhammer - the son of one of the builders.

When I perused the album “HISTORIC HUTS AND HOMESTEADS OF KOSCIUSZKO NATIONAL PARK” and came to pages 98 & 99, it certainly brought back many memories. My late father Willi Baumhammer and his two (2) offsiders were responsible for the erection and construction of the COOTAPATAMBA Hut and Gauging Station.
