Important Notes :  All NZAC huts are now closed to align with the latest Government Coronavirus requirements. You cannot self-isolate at an NZAC hut.

The New Zealand Government requires all people who arrived in the country after 1 am Monday 16 March or if you develop symptoms of COVID-19 like a cough, fever, shortness of breath, sneezing or a runny nose, to go into self-isolation for 14 days. You cannot stay or camp at any NZAC huts or lodges during your 14-day self-isolation period.

All bookings of NZAC huts have also now been halted. If you wish to make future group bookings or make manual payments for anything, including past hut stays, please email Margaret who can help you with this.

Note: You need to log in first, when booking, to obtain member rates. 


Built in 1932, this small rustic two-room hut sits tucked in by the forest edge, a short distance from its busier cousin Aspiring Hut, in the beautiful west Matukituki Valley.
