Kylies Hut is an historic hut that was built by local man Ernie Metcalfe for Australian author Kylie Tennant who moved to the area during World War II. Kylie used the hut as a writers retreat, no doubt using the stunning scenery of the park for inspiration. Ernie Metcalfe, Diamond Head and Crowdy Bay is portrayed in The Man on the Headland.

The hut is in a shady glade and secluded campsites are nestled under nearby trees. It's a great place for relaxing and maybe a spot of writing. And at the rear of Kylies Hut is a track to Kylies Beach. You are welcome to have a look inside the hut, but it's not a place for camping in or for campfires; that's what outside is for.
