Borland Shelter / Borland Bivvy / Island Lake Track Shelter

Fiordland National Park

The Borland Shelter (sleeps 3, river water) is a basic road-end A-frame shelter. The hut has no facilities apart from 3 beds, though stream water is available nearby. The hut is located at the road-end for the Island Lake Track.

The hut is a handy base for the night allowing an early start into the Grebe, Florence, Jaquiery or to Green Lake. It can also be used as part of a circuit from the Borland Lodge via Green lake and the tops.
