While enjoying a day exploring Werakata National Park, in Lower Hunter Valley, heritage Foresty Hut is well worth a visit. The site offers the chance to glimpse a bygone era for the park and the people who worked here.
Surrounded by tall trees, Forestry Hut is situated near Astills picnic area where you can enjoy a peaceful lunch. Bring the bikes and cycle nearby Deadmans mountain bike loop.
Huts like this were used as a base for forestry workers when the timber industry flourished. Today, the natural wonders of this park are protected and Forestry Hut is a historic reminder earlier times. As you listen to the birds in surrounding bush, imagine just how different this peaceful setting would have been many years ago. It's a good idea to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch.
