Venus Hut | Kahurangi National Park

Venus Hut has to be one of the great located huts around, perched in a small clearing just above the Karamea River, you can pop out to have a look at the huge trout languidly oscillating in the clear green water below. On the other side check out the flock of fantails that make the Venus Stream home and flit around the close at hand swingbridge.

Double glazed, insulation big time, an extensive verandah to sit and just appreciate the surroundings, quite different from the old hut it replaced.
