Green Gorge hut is located on the east coast approximately 15 km south of Macquarie Island station, roughly halfway down the island.

Green Gorge hut is a favourite field hut for many expeditioners. The hut is a comfortable Canadian log cabin. It can accommodate 5 to 6 people. The cabin includes a food store and storage shed.

Green Gorge is a distinctive geological feature on Macquarie Island. The gorge was once a large tidal inlet that has become a lake as the island rose over time. Rugged steep escarpments, narrow gorges and waterfalls surround a swampy, grass covered basin.

Light-mantled sooty albatross, blue petrels, and grey petrels are known to breed in this general area. Large numbers of penguins and seals can be seen on the beach immediately in front of the hut. These animals can be easily observed from the hut window. It's almost like to watching a wildlife documentary on television. Elephant seals dominate the beach in spring. King penguins can be seen throughout the year.

The food store, known as ‘Shangri-La’, was originally a two-bunk hut built in 1955. The log cabin was built in 1977 and was renovated again in 1995 with new cladding and a veranda.

Green Gorge hut is very popular as a place to enjoy an overnight break on a journey from one end of the island to the other. The hut is accessible from the overland track or by inflatable rubber boat.
