Located between Mt Lovick and King Billy 1, Lovick’s Hut is one of the original mountain cattlemen’s huts, built in 1960 by Jack Lovick and used for many years by the Lovick family as a base for horse trail rides. Rebuilt in 2014-2015, the hut is in a secluded and picturesque area offering a grassy camping spot surrounded by snowgums with access to adjacent horse yards.
Hikers can access the hut from the east from the direction of Mt Howitt, while horseriders and 4WD vehicles can head over from the Bluff. Lovick’s Hut is accessed via the 4WD Bluff Track or Cairn Creek Track off Brocks Road.
Please note access by vehicle is not possible from June to November due to seasonal track closures in the High Country. These closures generally operate from the long weekend in June through to the beginning of November, but may be extended due to seasonal conditions. Contact the Mansfield Visitor Information Centre for more details.
