Maropea Forks Hut
Maropea Forks Hut was replaced in 2014. The new hut was built in partnership between the New Zealand Defence Force and DOC. NZ Army engineers and builders constructed the hut with materials supplied by DOC.
The hut is a location enjoyed by trampers, hunters and fishers and is also a home territory of the native whio (blue duck).

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.
