Biography/History

Sir Herbert Schlink (1883-1962) was a gynaecologist, surgeon and hospital administrator who played a leading part in the development of Australia's snowfields. Schlink Pass, the highest road pass in Australia, opened on 29 April 1961, was named after him. Schlink was involved in the first Kiandra to Kosciuszko ski tour, 1927.

The Kosciusko Huts Association, formed in 1971, is an Australia-wide organisation which restores and maintains huts in the Kosciuszko and Namadgi National Parks for use by bushwalkers and skiers. The Association also undertakes research into the historic significance of the Parks' huts.
