Ritchie's Hut

High Country

Nestled amongst the mountains and on the banks of the Howqua River, you will find Ritchie’s Hut. Originally built by local craftsman Fred Fry, the hut was a genuine Heritage slab construction, built as a fishing hut for the Ritchie family of Mansfield.

The construction of the new hut, located on the same site as the old one, utilised recycled materials and original building techniques wherever possible.

Ritchie's Hut is a six kilometre trek from the 8 Mile camping area on Brocks Road, access from Sheepyard Flat / Merrijig (via Howqua Track).
