Carrington Hut

Arthur's Pass National Park

A large hut in the upper Waimakariri River, and often the first or last hut on a longer trip.

The extensive hut has eight rooms: four bunk rooms (each with 3 sets of bunks in 3 tiers), a foyer, a washroom, and two living spaces (one with log burner).

This is the third hut on site, built 1975. The first was built 1926, and the second around 1940.
