Maungahuka Hut

Tararua Forest Park

The original hut (pictured) has been replaced by a new hut on the same location. Sleeps 12, but has no fireplace / woodburner (there was no wood within a km anyway, so no great loss!). A huge air-vent in the door makes for a draughty night's sleep: bring some newspaper and sellotape!

The original warning still applies: don't get lost going to the toilet - it is at the far end of the tarn (path on right hand side looking out from the hut door).
