Wallace’s Hut near Falls Creek is the oldest hut in Victoria’s Alpine National Park. It was built by the three Wallace brothers, Arthur, William and Stewart, who arrived as small boys in Melbourne from Ireland in 1869. Now used by hikers and cross country skiers for emergency shelter, it’s not exactly the height of luxury.

Accessibility drops in winter requiring a snowshoe or X-country ski trip, though the distance isn’t that far from Falls Creek Village. Twisted snow gums shadow the hut surrounding it with a mythical quality and enhance its historic appeal. The interior of the hut doesn’t lend itself to a means of accommodation even for weary hikers, but the locale is a poplar campsite for the tent bound and sports toilets and a nearby fresh water stream.
