About this hut

Brodrick Hut.
Brodrick Hut


Brodrick Hut was built in 1966 by the New Zealand Forest Service. At that time it was sited so it could be easily seen by people coming from the Landsborough over Brodrick Pass.

Getting there

Broderick Hut is 9 hours (22.5 km) up the Huxley valley, off Hopkins valley at the end of Lake Ohau Road.
