Totara Flats Hut

Tararua Forest Park

A central hut for the Kaitoke to Holdsworth trip (3 days). It was sited under trees at the north-west corner of Totara Flats (largest flat in Tararuas at 2 km by 0.5 km) but was replaced since it was built on unstable gravel. It is now located a few minutes to the north (near the old hut site). It takes about 26 in two separate bunk rooms. The living area has 3 tables, a big wood burner, plus a separate bench area for preparing your food. There is a covered lean-to with a couple of sinks to do your washing up and ablutions. Have a look at Sayer's Hut over the river.
