West Harper Hut | Craigieburn Forest Park

Not too many of these old-style huts are still around. Many trampers would be pleased that the majority of DOC huts has a considerable level of amenity above what is provided at West Harper Hut.

West Harper Hut has considerable character: bush cut structural timbers, err, no flooring provided, it’s dirt, canvas, hammock-style bunks, basically the opportunity for a trip back to the distant past.
