Long Description:

This Hut is accessible only by boat which can be launched from TeAnau Downs or TeAnau township itself and is a fairly significant ride to the Worsley Arm which is west of the head of the lake. Worsley Hut attracts mostly Fishermen and Hunters and is a hut that has bunks and mattress for 12 people. The hut is sited in some of New Zealands most beautiful Native Forest and Valleys and a walk up the valley for about 20 minutes will take you to St Marys Falls which are hidden on the south side of the valley and requires some "Bush Bashing" to get to the base of these falls as well as wading across the Worsley River itself of which there are no bridges so pick your day and place!! The Hut has a pot-belly stove and since you need a boat to get there it is a good idea to cart along a sack of coal for the fire. [DON'T GO DESTROYING THE SURROUNDING BUSH FOR THE SAKE OF A FIRE.] You can cook on top of the pot-belly but take gas cookers non-the-less. The weather patterns on the Lake for the Boat ride in are dubious at the best of times so learn to try and read the mood of the weather and the lake a little. The main part of the lake can be smooth but once you enter any of the arms of this lake it can be a different picture and visa versa. Hut & Fees are managed by the Department of Conservation in TeAnau. Look after this hut and leave it cleaner than when you arrived should you visit.
