Third time lucky…Today I managed to find Sama Hut which is also known as Tyson's Hut, Lost World Hut and the A Frame Hut.
This triangular looking hut was built in 1968-1969 by Jeff Tyson with the help of his brother and a mate. Tyson used a lot of blood, sweat and tears carrying all the materials in to build the hut from the Glenorchy track head - not an easy feat by any means as there would have been a lot of walking through thick scrub.
Today it is used by climbers and all sorts of adventurers. In the heart of the Tasmanian winter it can be made cosy by lighting the fireplace whilst have a warm cup of soup beside the glowing embers -another great little hut with a lot of history.
Please treat the hut with respect and remove any rubbish you take in.
