Old Pelion Hut is an alpine hut located in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park in the Central Highlands of Tasmania. It was built for the Mount Pelion Copper Mining Company at around 1936.[1]

In 1980, the hut and its surroundings (i.e. 400 metres (1,300 ft) radius) were listed on the now-defunct Register of the National Estate.[2] As of 2019, the hut is included as part of the listing for the Pelion Copper Mine on the Tasmanian Heritage Register.[3]
