Batty's Hut Site

Postby gmac » Mon 13 Mar, 2017 6:30 am

Finally managed to find the time to get to this site, had been on the list for sometime. The walk down to Round Plain was straight forward, the last section down to the hut site was across a lot of fallen timber and through shoulder high scrub with no clear footpad. Arrived at the hut site set up camp as it started to rain then located the spring, which was shallow and slow flowing but all ok.

Very mild overnight with a damp walk back through the scrub and up onto the Big River Fire trail and out along Heathy Spur.

Not a lot of info around on this site and certainly appears rarely visited but worth the detour off the Big River Fire trail or the maps show a track in from just above Ropers Hut. We found the one from near Warby Corner the most straight forward and the walk across Round Plain provides some great views.

This is from Apr 2008 - more bits have disappeared since then. It had snowed overnight, although it only looks like a frost from the pictures. We were walking out in about a foot of snow when we reached the more open parts of the High Plains.

Hi all, I am doing a loop around the northern part of the Bogong HP around xmas and was thinking of going for a stroll off the AAWT down to Battys and back - by the sounds of it you'd recommend the diversion, correct?

The deadfall between Round Plain and Batty's was a real pain in November 2018, but I may have been able to choose a better route for that bit.
