Located on Howitt Road, Bryces Plain (Snowy Plains).
Snowy Plains has been used for generations as summer pasture for cattle by local families.
Alex Guy acquired Wonnangatta Station and the Snowy Plains freehold in 1934.
The hut was built to replace a nearby hut, now gone, for mustering in March 1940.
Alex died in 1949 and was succeeded by his sons, Jack and Arthur.
Their Wonnangatta homestead was burnt down in 1959, and the lease transferred to the Gilder Family in 1970,
thereafter soon bought by the Victorian Government.
The hut was originally built three logs high, and later extended to seven logs high.
The timber frames are adzed snow gum found locally and form a gabled roof, now covered with corrugated iron.
The floor is paved with basalt blocks, and the chimney is dry stone construction.
The hut is still in good condition and used by walkers and skiers as a bad weather refuge.
Victoria is Australia's second smallest State and covers only 3% of Australia's land area but has the second highest population of all States and Territories. Victoria's mainland and islands have a total length of 2,512 kilometres coastline which is about 4.2% of Australia's 59,736 kilometres of coastline. Australia is the driest inhabited continent and Victoria is no exception although the state capital Melbourne has the reputation to have 4 seasons in one day. Victoria is located in the southeast of mainland Australia and includes the most southern point on mainland Australia at Wilsons Promontory National Park.
