If you’re heading out on a family adventure, a DOC hut can be a great option for accommodation. Here are some insider tips from our rangers for your next hut break.
Volunteer to look after our huts and provide a welcoming environment for trampers.
Volunteers are needed to help maintain tracks, huts, historic sites and gardens. There are a range of practical, hands on tasks you can get involved in.
