Johnston Hut is sited in a beaut little spot south east of Mount Nelse and provides grassy shaded camping spots beside the rustic hut where we can cook our meals. There’s even ample outdoor seating around a huge fire pit!

This hike is ideal for those wishing to do their first overnighter (others are quite welcome to join us). It is a short  5 km walk up the Big River Fire Track before turning off to the hut and because we will get there early there are options to take a stroll down to Edmondson Hut for a squizz or to just relax beneath the trees and chill out. Sound idyllic?

Members should not be put off if they feel they do not have the necessary gear – tents, packs, etc can be hired from Adventure Gear, Albury or we can arrange a loan of just about anything, except a pack horse!
