Waterfall Wednesday and Hump Day Huts

Welcome to another edition of Waterfall Wednesday and Hump Day Huts to get you through another day in isolation. Today we are taking a look at the beautiful southern region of New South Wales and into the massive South East Forests National Park. Our hut is in the northern section of this vast national park. Alexanders Hut is an historic cattleman’s hut that was built in 1892. This style of hut is unusual in this area as it is usually reserved for the famous cattleman’s huts scattered throughout the high country making it a gem to visit. Camping is permitted near the hut with the building itself only to be used for emergency shelter.

Sticking in South East Forests National Park today’s waterfall is the delightful Cascades in Six Mile Creek. Located not far from the hut if you are game to take the 4wd route via the Postmans Track this delightful series of cascades is set amidst lush rainforest and only a short stroll from one of our all time favourite camp spots in this part of the world, Six Mile Creek Rest Area. We have camped here on a number of occasions over the years and it is just a wonderful and easy to access spot that we both adore.

We hope this helps to get you through another week. Keep an eye out for our Sunday Shorts series again this Sunday where we take a further look at what the impressive South East Forests National Park in Southern NSW has to offer.
