Saxon Hut | Heaphy Track, Kahurangi National Park
Saxon Hut is an older, 1982 hut, in the style that used to populate the Heaphy, one big room, and, if stacked to full capacity, would prove to be slightly inadequate in terms of benches and seating for the inhabitants.
This is the place to hear great spotted kiwis squawk at night, apparently.
