Kelly Range

Type
Part of

From the hut a slope goes up to Kelly’s Hill (1408m), and there is also access onto the rolling tops of the Kelly Range to the south. Note that the weather comes in rapidly and navigation skills are required on this rolling terrain to return to the hut or your tent at the end of the day.
Ski Touring
The Kelly Range was the scene of another early ski area that has now passed into history. Westerlies and south-westerlies may bring good snow dumps in winter.
