The huts are on the High Plains beyond Falls Creek and we’ll walk the “easy” route to them. Starting at Watchbed Creek, we’ll follow Big River Fire Track to a junction where we’ll turn onto the Kelly Track. On the way we’ll make the short detour to Fitzgerald Hut before having lunch at Kelly’s Hut. We’ll retrace our steps to the cars after lunch. The walk is all on track with slight undulations.

This walk is all on tracks with not much elevation change and is either a good introduction to the high plains or a chance to get away from the heat.
