Old Pelion Hut. Very old Pelion Hut.

Oct. 17, 2017

The Overland Track’s Old Pelion Hut is turning 100 this year.

The bush crafted old hut, a short detour from New Pelion Hut, was originally built in 1917. It is no longer used to shelter hikers.

To celebrate the 100 year milestone, Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife will put on a display of images, items and stories related to the hut at the Cradle Mountain Interpretation Centre. There will also be a gathering at the Old Pelion Hut on 18 November 2017.
