Pay when you make a booking – Backcountry Hut Tickets can't be used to pay for use of this hut, but a Backcountry Hut Pass can. If you want to use a Backcountry Hut Pass as payment during the booking period (December–April), make a booking at the DOC office listed under Contacts below.

Due to the fragile alpine environment around Brewster hut, camping is not recommended.

Outside the booking period (May-November) before you go, pay for each night's stay at the DOC office listed under contacts below. Put the till receipt in the honesty box at the hut. Or buy a Backcountry Hut Pass for unlimited use at most Serviced and Standard huts for a 6 or 12 month period.


Bookings are available from 1 December to 28 April. 

Book online or contact the Tititea/Mount Aspiring National Park Visitor Centre.
