Situated at approximately 1000m elevation, the Government Huts provide an excellent base for experiencing the alpine regions of Mount Field National Park. They are nestled among snow gums and overlook a beautiful alpine moorland.
There are numerous walks within the park, many of which start close by the huts. The huts are just a 10 minute walk from Lake Dobson.
The Government Huts were established on the Lake Dobson Road in 1940s for the use of the original Lake Dobson road workers, before being moved to their current location near Lake Dobson.
Government Huts provide low-cost, basic accommodation for visitors and small groups. There are five small huts with space for six visitors each. The complex includes a communal toilet facility as well as a woodshed and water tank (but no showers).
