Craig’s Hut was a movie set built especially for the film The Man from Snowy River in 1982 and was named after the family that lived there. The hut standing today is the fourth version. Version three burnt down by wild fire on 11 December 2006 and the hut was again rebuilt in 2007.

Two days of guided walking around Mt Stirling with stunning views of Mt Buller and surrounding peaks. Watch the vegetation change from tall Alpine Ash to beautiful Snow Gums and keep an eye out for deer, wallabies and lyre birds, and various parrots like Cockatoos, Rosellas and Galahs. The sunrise and sunset at Craig’s Hut are the perfect opportunity to put your camera to work and capture the beauty of this area.

Not a difficult track, but the steady ascent of Mt Stirling and short, steep sections to and from Craig’s Hut will get your heart rate up. You need to be reasonably fit to enjoy this hike carrying an overnight backpack. But, the experience of arriving at Craig’s Hut under your own steam with your accommodation in the backpack you are carrying is something really special.
