Puketeraki Bivvy

Small hut with wooden platform bunks on pastoral lease land near the Waimakariri River. Craig Benbow has renovated it, lining it with insulation and installed a perspex window. He'll come back sometime and rehabilitate the chimney. The fireplace is currently boarded up. However if this is to be used, the bunk platforms will need to be reconfigured so that the mattresses are nowhere near the fireplace that they currently are i.e. the lower one running across the hut and a higher one running lengthwise on the northern side of the biv.
