Long Description:
The Borland Bivvy is really just an emergency A-frame hut that serves little function other than being a stop over in the event of bad weather or some other event causing delay. In saying that - it can serve to function as a base for Hunting/hiking the area but it is only a 2 bed hut with no other facility for it. It can be driven to and I think most people that ever use it , use it as a jumping point to the Green Lake Track. More information on the Borland Bivvy can be found on the Dept of Conservation website here; http://www.doc.govt.nz/parks-and-recreation/places-to-stay/backcountry-huts-by-region/fiordland/southern-fiordland/borland-bivvy/
