Also known as Four Mile Hut or Gardiner's Hut.


This is a fisherman's hut built by Fred Fry in about 1948 after a Permissive Occupancy was granted to him on 1 September 1947. It was named after KW Gardner, who assisted in its construction and wrote a recent history of it.

The hut is two buildings joined by a veranda, with the first part being a bunk house that came from the Albert Park Military Camp in Melbourne. This forms the dormitory hut end.

The hut received restoration by Alex Andselkovic in 1986.

The hut is commonly used when search and rescue or other emergencies drive a need for accommodation in the area.
