Poulter Bivvy

Arthur's Pass National Park

A new 2 bunk D.O.C. bivvy located in the headwaters of the Poulter River. It has two sleeping platforms with mattresses arranged in an L-Shape and a small cooking bench. It’s a well insulated little bivvy and has standing room, unlike many of the older style bivs. From the door, there are expansive views down valley. There’s also a shiny new loo.

Getting there
Getting there
From Poulter Hut, keep following the Poulter River upstream along the riverflats. From Worsley Biv, the river narrows and eventually heads into a gorge. Heading up in heavy rain isn’t a wise idea as there is no escape route in places. The gorge eventually opens up into a sub-alpine valley. The biv is first seen in this valley after a large shingle fan on the true right.

There are more challenging tops routes to the biv from Koropuku Hut & Townsend Hut.
