Hope Kiwi Lodge | Lake Sumner Forest Park

Hope Kiwi Lodge was once the outstanding hut in the area, still much used by scout groups and school parties, it’s now somewhat faded and in serious need of a makeover.

Despite the shabbiness it’s still comfortable enough and despite the lack of any immediate dramatic track highlight it’s certainly well located.
