Christmas Village Hunters Hut | Rakiura National Park, Stewart Island

Christmas Village Hunters Hut is an older Stewart Island hunter’s hut. Not for use by casual trampers. Close to Christmas Village beach, so there’s plenty of firewood around. Some distance from the trampers hut.

No village, pub, maidens, Saturday market, or town square I’m sorry to say.

Currently in a decrepit state: September 2018. Can someone please send me a message when this has been renovated. Cheers gj_coop @me.com (remove space)

Has all the amenities of the usual DOC hut, with some useful additions abandoned by previous hunting parties, pots and pans, etc.
