Built by John Grindell, the first land owner to take up this arduous country in the early 1900s. The view from this hut, overlooking the Illinawortinna Pound and the Gammons, is breathtaking in its sheer grandeur, and the hut is available for rent. For details contact the Ranger at Balcanoona. The hut is located at the western end of Weetootla Gorge, about 10 km along the Arkaroola Rd from Balcanoona. The access road to the hut and other routes in the park leaves the road to the west. It is rough in places and 4WD is recommended only due to rocky sections, steep slopes and creek crossings.

The hut consists of two bedrooms, a sleep out, lounge, kitchen, storeroom, laundry and bathroom.

Bedroom One sleeps up to two people - one queen bed.

Bedroom Two sleeps up to six people - three sets of bunks.

The lounge has a combustion fire and lounge chairs.

The kitchen is equipped with a gas fridge, gas stove/oven, sink and all crockery and cutlery. There is also a table with seating for eight people.

Solar lighting and gas hot water available. No power points.

Gas BBQ and wood BBQ.

What to bring: All linen, blankets, pillows, towels, tea towels, toilet paper, matches and firewood (if required).
