This new Casey hut opened in August 2020 and replaces the original Casey Hut which burnt down in 2015. The old hut site remains as a camping area with a toilet. The new hut site is approximately 800 m east of the old site, on a terrace overlooking the Poulter River.

Before you go, buy 1 Serviced Hut Ticket (green for adults) or 3 Standard Hut Tickets (blue for adults, yellow for youth) for each night's stay. Put these in the honesty box at the hut. Or buy a Backcountry Hut Pass for unlimited use at most Serviced and Standard huts for a 6 or 12 month period.
