About this hut

This hut was built in 1960 by the New Zealand Forest Service for animal control purposes. The hut was upgraded in 1993, with the assistance of members of the Central Hawke’s Bay Shooters Club.

At 1080m above sea level, the hut can experience snow and high rainfall typical of high altitude areas.

The hut was tank water supply and a wood burner for heating.
