Made sense to me. Crollsurf meant Brayshaws not Bradhsaws.

I'll blame auto correct. I was thinking of Brayshaw's. Another NSW from the same area. Name the trail or the hut I'm heading to. In fact the trail is named after the hut

"The Kelvinator" or "Ice Box" formerly next to Whites River Hut, Kosciuszko NP via Munyang NSW

South of the previous photo. The main structure pictured, which I think was removed around 2012, is associated with a larger (intact) building.

The associated structure was effectively rebuilt after a fire.

That's it crollsurf. I took this near the end of 2011, probably not all that long before NPWS removed it.
According to KHA info it was originally an SMA hydrology hut elsewhere, then moved as overflow accommodation for WRH.
Nicknamed ‘the Kelvinator’ or ‘Icebox’ due to lack of heating.

Lucky. You got there just before they removed it in 2012. Another from NSW, this time somewhere on the South Coast.

That's it. I don't know, is that close enough or does anyone want to get a little more specific like naming the bay.
