Mid Wairoa Hut | Mt Richmond Forest Park

This is a reminder of what the old NZFS huts were like back in the day: open fireplace, poorly orientated, galvanised steel bench top. Being in the bottom of a valley it’s somewhat gloomy.

Then again the river here is absolutely as attractive as they come, all that pure, clear water, with a little waterfall just by the hut.
