This hut was built in 1931 in memory of two men,James Park and John Morpeth who lost their lives, drowning in the Burnett which is a swift-flowing stream that drains into the Wilberforce River.
Materials to build this hut were carried in by pack horse from Mt Algidus Station by the father of one of our currant members Colin Burrows. Mr Larry Burrows and his brother Bill were employed by the club to build the hut as they had already built several station huts up the Wilberforce valley. On another occasion club members carried materials over Harman Pass 1321m and Whitehorn Pass 1753m to its current site at the corner of the Wilberforce & Cronin Streams at approximately 900m.
As a club member if something needs attention or repairing please let our huts team know.
