Welcome to Kennedy's Hut on the beautiful Mitta Mitta River.
Kennedy's Hut is located on the West bank of the Mitta Mitta River about 1 1/2 Km walk from Taylors Crossing. You can drive a 4X4 to the location, there is very pretty camping to be had near the hut and there are drop toilets and a fire pit. History: The hut was built by Pat Bourke- Kennedy in 1967 with the assistance of Grace Bourke- Kennedy, Camilla Faithfull and Ker Faithfull, after he took up the lease on 1 December 1965. It was used to support cattle grazing and for recreation. The Cooksey family are now the caretakers of the hut. Construction: Built of logs with a sapling roof frame and gal iron. The gables are sawn timber. Six pane secondhand windows provide light into the hut as well as a laserlight panel. The hut originally had three rooms with carpet and vinyl but today the hut is one open room. The Cooksey family carried out repairs in 2001. From the Kosciuszko Huts Association website. You can drive (4X4) to the hut by crossing the Mitta (when the water is low enough) at Taylors Crossing or following Kelly's Track from the Omeo Valley. There are seasonal road closures from the Thursday before Queen's Birthday til the Thursday before Melbourne Cup weekend. (Taylors Crossing can be closed longer depending on water height and if the river bed has been chewed out). There is a large pool straight out from the hut, with a steep, slippery ban, so watch the geokids. All the usual national park regulations apply and please re-hide the cache properly for the enjoyment of other cachers.
