Many of our groups do use their tents on some nights. You do need a mat for the huts and there is no cocking fuel at the huts.
The Overland Track huts are cold in winter. We do get many comments about snoring, the huts can be very full and amazing how many people snore. Not good if you are light sleeper.
Some people cook in the hut but sleep in the tents.

A new hut opened in 2023 that is very comfortable/
