Trying to find a photo,so many digital records these days... however there used to be shelves repurposed from explosives boxes. I found these quite endearing in a small shack.

"Endearing" . . . well, maybe, as long as they're empty.

Tree Damage to Jans/Staggs Hut



Jans Hut or Staggs Hut, located in the Thomson River State Forest on the western side of Thomson Dam, was badly damaged by a falling tree during the recent severe weather in Gippsland. The Victorian High Country Huts Association (VHCHA) is working with the Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning (DELWP) on assessing the damage and possible repairs in the spring (depending on the extent of damage ). If you are planning to bushwalk in this area and intend to use this hut, please make alternative arrangements as it is not safe for use. Any queries please contact hmo4@hutsvictoria.org.au.

Jans Hut, whilst hidden, is a popular hiking destination for those in the know either as a side trip from the Australian Alps Walking Track or the easier route using a logging track in the State Forest. Our Bushwalking Tracks and Conservation (BTAC) team has offered its services to the VHCHA to support any make-safe or repair works it may undertake.
