Connors Creek Hut | near Nelson Lakes National Park

Build a hut close to the road, and a four-wheel-drive track right to the front door, and the hut is bound to be in less than pristine condition.

Like many huts of the time the major determinant of the layout was the location of the chimney, hence the positioning of the windows and bunks in a less desirable aspect. Despite all this, it exhibits some charm.
