Whariwharangi Hut

Abel Tasman National Park

A pioneer homestead located in Whariwharangi Bay at the top of Abel Tasman National Park.

The two-storey house was built 1898, but farming was never successful, and the house was abandoned 1926. It was restored 1980.

A side trip from here to Separation Point is worthwhile.
