Long Description:
This hut is most frequently visited by Hunters and is accessible by boat primarily, down Lake Hauroko. Boating on this Lake can be harrowing as weather funnels out of the mountains to the lake so pick your day! It is a sizeable journey and boats can be launched at Lake Hauroko Jetty. The hut itself has bunks & matresses for 12 people and has a pot-belly stove for heating. Take gas cookers! Be it that you need a boat to get there I would advocate taking your own sack of coal for the fire and not be hacking away at wood from the surrounding Native Forest. There are tracks to this Hut but they are significantly long. The hike from the Lake Hauroko Jetty takes 9+ hours Topographical Map and compass is a must and GPS coverage could be scant under the forest canopy. Leave this hut clean and tidy should you go there and don't forget to take your camera should you visit it either. The scenery here typifies Southern Fiordland / New Zealand.
