Ashburton Hut?

Hakatere Conservation Park

Not sure if this really is called Ashburton hut, or what state it is in. I could see it on the other side of the valley, but I wasn't prepared to cross the flooded river to visit it. It is about 3km downstream from Top Hut in the South Branch of the Ashburton River.
