Bluff Hut
Victoria
Nestled in a saddle to the East of Mt Eadley Stoney (1684m), Bluff hut is within the Alpine National Park Grazing commenced at the Bluff Lease in the 1940s by Jack Ware and Eadley Stoney of "Minto Park". Jack Davon took over in the 1950's. The Bluff hut was built in 1955, with all local cattlemen in the area assisting. Jack Ware shaped the all important timbers. Jack Ware retired in 1965 and Eadley Stoney died in 1972, so the Bluff Run was taken over by his son Graeme. Chris Stoney took over the management of the run and hut in 1992. This hut burned down in January 2007 by wildfires. The hut was re-built by VHCHA members and the Stoney family in December 2007. Currently cattle grazing is no longer permitted in the Alpine National park. However the new hut is popular with 4wd'ers and horse riders. Access is 4wd only.
