new Homestead Hunters Hut | Rakiura National Park, Stewart Island

The new Homestead Hunters Hut is another newish Stewart Island hunter’s hut. Not for use by casual trampers. On the edge of manuka scrub so there’s some firewood around.

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