Bonnie Jean Hut

Whakaari Conservation Area

Built in 1943, this hut near Bonnie Jean Mine is preserved as an on-site museum. It features an old tractor used to run cables transporting ore. The mine adit is also nearby and flooded with water. It is of course unsafe to enter.

This hut is not available for overnight accommodation but Heather Jock Hut is nearby.
