Bookings not required - first come, first served
This hut was relocated from Lower Arahura Hut site, much of it had to be replaced and strengthened due to high winds that can be experienced on Mt Brown, this was carried out by many hours of volunteer work from the Mt Brown Community Project Team.
The volunteers that worked on this hut wanted to encourage first time trampers and families to use this hut.
The track is managed by volunteers and is signposted just south of Geologist Creek on the east side of Lake Kaniere on the Dorothy Falls Road.
No fees, this hut is managed by the Kokatahi Tramping Club.
Mt Brown Hut is located on a route that is no longer maintained by DOC. This route receives some maintenance on a sporadic basis by Permolat, who also provide information about the route to this hut on their website.
