‘Craig’s Hut’ was situated in the Alpine National Park in the Victorian highlands about 60kms east of Mansfield on a small knoll on an open spur 1455m above sea level. It was built especially for the film ‘The Man from Snowy River’ in 1981 and provides grand views in all directions. It was called Craig’s Hut after Jim Craig who was the lead character in the film and played by Tom Burlinson. The hut was also re-used in the sequel and another film called ‘Cool Change’.

The original hut was only a prop being built without a floor. There were another few variants built since then including one built in 1993 and constructed of horizontal wooden slabs with bark over an iron roof. Unfortunately, the hut was burnt down by wild fire on the 11th December 2006.
