About this hut

Rogers Hut is constructed of matai studs and plates with interior walls of slab beech. Located amidst outstanding scenery - close to the river and surrounded by native bush.

Rogers Hut was one of the first two constructed and was built in the winter of 1952 by a team of cullers led by Rex Forrester. Historic themes for this hut are recreation and animal pests.
