Graham Scully has been active in the Kosciuszko Huts Association (KHA) since 1988.  At that time KHA was very concerned that the ACT Parks and Conservation Service was neglecting Namadgi National Park’s cultural heritage and allowing the remaining huts and homesteads to fall into disrepair and ruin. 

This series of files was begun in 1988 to collect historical information and raise public awareness of the value of Namadgi’s huts and heritage. 

By 1995 Graham’s focus switched to Kosciuszko National Park with only occasional additions to these files since then.

This collection has two series.

Series 1: Namadgi Sites research files

Series 2: Namadgi Huts research files

Series 3: Namadgi History research files

Series 4: Early Correspondence on Kosciusko Huts Association involvement in hut conservation

There is cross-over between the series.
