- Nelson Lakes National Park
- Angelus Hut, 24 bunks
- Drive north-west out of St Arnaud and take the first left after Black Hill onto West Bay road. Park at the end to begin the walk.
There are several routes to the 28-bunk hut, but the Pinchgut Track offers the best chance of views.
It starts at 879m and rises to Mt Robert ski field at around 1560m. There is a shelter here in case of bad weather and it's a good spot to have a meal break. To reach Angelus Hut, continue along Robert Ridge, following cairns and poles. Experience reading a map and using a compass is essential in bad weather or low visibility conditions. The hut is nestled beside Lake Angelus.
It's a gorgeous and popular spot, so get there early to secure a good bed.
