Camping at Howitt Hut is centred on a cattleman’s hut built in the early 20th century, making it one of the oldest such structures in this section of the park. You can reach this site, beside the Caledonia River, by following the scenic Howitt Rd for 30 km north of Arbuckle Junction. There are horse paddocks here, used mainly by those riding east towards Wonnangatta Homestead. There’s also a testing walk nearby up Mt Howitt.
