Te Matawai

Tararua Forest Park

A big L-shaped hut with 2 big sleeping platforms (18 mattresses) in one arm and the living area in the other. Indoor water and sink. One cooking bench and a new stainless steal table. Standard DOC wood burner.

A covered porch with uncovered deck. Good views up to Pukematawai from the front door - better views from the helicopter clearing just up the hill.

Cell phone coverage (Vodafone) from hut, but better from helicopter clearing.
