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.
This hut operates on a first come, first served basis and cannot be booked. Backcountry hut tickets are required to pay for your stay but do not guarantee a bunk - consider carrying a sleeping mat in the event that no bunks are available.
Backcountry hut tickets can be purchased from a DOC visitor centre.
