Take a breath of fresh air and step back in time. These unique stone/slab huts, located in the picturesque Moonbah Valley region of the New South Wales Snowy Mountains (15 minutes drive from the ski resort town of Jindabyne), enjoy private frontage to the Blue Ribbon declared Moonbah River – the regions most pristine trout stream – (complete with resident platypus). The Lake Hut also fronts a small private lake containing brown, brook and rainbow trout.
If you’re feeling particularly invigorated, go mountain bike riding, (Norco 24 speed suspension bikes are available for hire), or maybe take a dip in the cool, crystal clear waters of the Moonbah River.
If all this sounds a little too tiring, just sit in the rocking chair on the verandah and read a book.
The huts are very cosy (even in -15c) and the Lake Hut sleeps a maximum 4 people, ideally 2 adults and 2 young children & the River Hut a maximum 5 persons. There are ‘inside’ bathrooms, (no outhouses here).
Local telephone is connected, however you can make long distance calls reverse charges, if required.
The bedding is high quality and all beds have electric blankets.
The fishing is outstanding. Expert guiding, tuition and or fly tying, can be arranged. (Rods and all gear required, are available for hire).
Both of the hut’s feature huge, stone open fireplaces and with snow on either Christmas or Boxing Day, on 6 of the past 9 years, the fireplaces can be enjoyed on most nights of the year. There is also a wood stove (and a twin electric hotplate) for cooking and a small fridge/freezer to store your catch in. All cutlery, crockery, cookware, etc is supplied.
There are few modern appliances, as the huts are very traditional – No television reception or playstations!
Moonbah Huts are the ideal and unique summer, or winter, getaways. Unfortunately Moonbah Huts are not suitable for pets.
