King Hut is located on the western edge of the Alpine National Park, about 15 kilometres north-east of Mt Stirling, alongside the King River. The 4WD access route heads down Speculation Road, which is reached via a turn-off from Circuit Rd about 6 km south-east of the Craig’s Hut turn-off. There are horse yards here for use by intrepid explorers. The hut itself is in excellent condition, having been recently rebuilt.
Please note access by vehicle is not possible from June to November due to seasonal track closures in the High Country. These closures generally operate from the long weekend in June through to the beginning of November, but may be extended due to seasonal conditions. Contact the Mansfield Visitor Information Centre for more details.
