Mt Franklin Shelter

The Franklin Shelter was built to replace the Franklin Chalet that was destroyed in the 2003 bush fires. Some of the work undertaken was installing rainwater tanks, new valley strainers, sealing the floor and building brick piers to mark out the original building.

The Franklin Shelter is right on the ACT/NSW border. It is that close to the border that the shelter is in ACT and the toilet building is in NSW! Mt Franklin is Canberra’s 1st ski field and has been a popular destination for the Canberra Ski Club over the years.
