Date: 06 July 2010
The Anne River Hut, a 14-bunk hut on the St James Walkway, has burnt down. The Department of Conservation was advised of this yesterday by trampers coming off the track.
The cause of the fire is not yet known but it is being investigated.
If you intend to walk the walkway you can stay in the Anne Cullers Hut, close by, but as this is only a four-bunk hut, you are advised to also carry a tent.
