"The huts were seriously impressive, and we observed many walkers unexpectedly extending their overnight stays in the huts.
And why not, they were utterly welcoming, functional and to be honest just relaxing.Well done on your designs,
so proud of your interpretation of the area and the overland track in itself".
Janet Ryan, bushwalker
