Bealey Hut | Arthurs Pass National Park

Most huts close to a road get well trashed, or burnt down, so it’s somewhat surprising Bealey Hut is neither. It’s just a little off the track on the edge of a great patch of original forest.

An old NZFS-style hut that has had its fireplace removed but is otherwise in fair nick.
