Munro bushwalking hut was constructed by members of the Newcastle Bushwalking Club (formally the Newcastle Technical and University College Bushwallking Club) in the 1950s and 1960s. Munro Hut was named after Darby Munro, a notable member of the club at the time of construction.

The hut offers shelter to those completing the Link Trail in the Barrington Tops. Bunks are available for overnight stay with a fireplace in the middle of the hut.
