A spacious 8-bunk hut under an hour from the roadend, so very busy with young families, 'youth', hunters, etc. A separate private section is locked and used by NZDA.
The hut has a woodburner and tank water, and looks out across the Oroua Valley from high on the southern valleyside.
Popular hut with tourists and those eager to try a night in a hut.. An easy 6km from the Arthurs Pass highway. Occasional trampers too on Friday nights ... for an early start to the weekend.
6 bunk NZFS hut. Woodburner, tank water, sandflies. Door and floorboards do not seal, so bring the repellent.
A tidy 4-bunk hut in a large clearing above the Opaewai/Mangawai confluence (where the river becomes Apiti Stream).
The hut is reached from the river by a track 100m up Opaewai Stream from the confluence.
A four bunk hut (two still usable) that left DOC hands in a treaty settlement some years ago, owing to its position a few meters the wrong side of a line someone drew on a map. The hut has since deteriorated - the woodburner was removed a few years ago, and the former fireplace fell away from the hut in 2011, leaving a gaping hole. This has since been patched roughly, but the hut is barely weathertight (the roof is ok, but the walls leak) and really just an emergency shelter at this point. A sad state for what was a good functional hut in 2006.
