Tarn Hut | Mt Richmond Forest Park
Some might suggest that the “tarn” doesn’t quite meet the standard definition, many would just say, man, that’s a lake. Whatever the terminology it clearly meets the definition of picturesque with all those mature red beech trees ashore.
Set just off the main track in a sunny clearing, when it’s sunny, Tarn is another well renovated, comfy, hut.
Watch for the hut weka trying to catch the tadpoles in the tarn.
