Speargrass Hut

Nelson Lakes National Park

Previously a small cosy hut, but now a brand new roomy hut with two sleeping platforms, L shaped stainless steel kitchen bench and a table and seating at the top of a clearing. Water from Speargrass Creek (about 2 minutes walk). Creek is good for a secluded bathe, but new hut has tank & outside sink.
