"Old" Bluff Hut (has been relocated & upgraded)

Ex NZFS 4 person hut. Shifted by DOC in 2009 further upvalley. Following notes are historical.

The water supply is currently an unconnected pipe from guttering hopefully allowing water to flow into a 20 litre plastic container. 3 billies have also been left out on the former water tank platform to allow rain water to fill them.

There is a good outside fireplace by the door. The toilet is situated over a deep rock crevass. There are great views to be had.
