Moscow Villa Hut camping area
Bushman Bill Ah Chow finished this log and stone gem in 1942, on the day the Battle of Moscow was won. When local officials objected to the name, he allegedly told them it was actually an acronym for ‘My Own Summer Cottage Officially Welcome Visitors Inside Light Luncheon Available’. You can camp near the hut and enjoy the forested surrounds. From Nunniong Rd, follow Bentley Plain Rd for 3.3 km.
