Kakapo hut Oct 2010
Kakapo hut is near the river on the TL bank of the middle reaches of the Kakapo River. The Kakapo River is a tributary of the Karamea River.
The hut was built in 1958 by the NZFS for wild animal control purposes. It is a four bunker with an open fire.
Sections of the original tracks to this hut have become overgrown or obliterated by slips but it is easy enough to get to if you are competent at untracked bush travel.
