NOTE: The hut’s common room will be closed from Friday 2 November to Sunday 11th November while work is carried out. It will be locked and unusable (so no cooking facilities) until Monday 12th November 2018. The outside of the hut will also be painted on the two weekends during this period. The bunk rooms will be open as usual, but with work party members staying over, space may be limited at this time.

Summary:

Surrounded on all sides by the towering mountains of the spectacular Fiordland National Park, this hut is an extremely popular climber’s hangout. From this base the rock and snow of the Darrens is on your doorstep.
