Boozer Hut

Whakaari Conservation Area

An historic hut named for a notorious 1930s scheelite miner. The hut is clad in flattened steel drums, and contains original fittings, including coal range and bed.

The hut was built at the head of Bonnie Jean Stream, but was moved in 2011 as it was located on top of a moving landslip. It is now located on the route to Bonnie Jean Hut.

The hut is not suitable for overnight stay.
