Peter Woolley sent some amazing photos from a walk in 1947 by his aunt and uncle who were members of the Sydney Rucksack Club.
Trevor Clement sent in this report on their recent workparty at Frank & Jack's Hut in Namadgi National Park
Frank and Jack’s hut in Namadgi is only 2.7kms from the Yankee Hat car park and, as such, received a great number of visitors. The hut is in reasonable condition although there are a number of maintenance issues identified at a joint KHA and ACT PCS site visit in late 2016. As the new KHA caretaker I developed a plan to address the maintenance issues in a phased approach.
The Australian Alpine Club have posted some interesting heritage articles on their website including:
Two Tin Huts & a Heroic Snowy Mountain Crossing [takes you to the AAC's webpage]
These mention articles for the Australian Ski Yearbook which KHA has in it's collection.
