Before you go, buy 1 Standard Hut Ticket (blue for adults, yellow for youth) for each night's stay. Put this in the honesty box at the hut. Or buy a Backcountry Hut Pass that gives unlimited use at most Standard and Serviced huts for a 6 or 12 month period.
Foot access is possible via the Poulter Valley to Turnbull bivvy and the East Poulter Gorge.
Landholder permission is a must for foot access through Mt White Station. Vehicle access up the Poulter is only to the edge of the DOC area as vehicles are not allowed on conservation land.
