Rakeahua Hut | Rakiura National Park, Stewart Island

Rakeahua Hut is an old style 1970s NZFS hut, the last on the NW/S circuits, with the open fire replaced with a firebox, and surrounded by eight ancient, majestic cypress trees.

Worth considering the stroll up Mt Rakeahua if the weather is OK, the track is well marked although care needs to taken above the treeline if the weather deteriorates, the track is well marked, mostly, and the view rewards the effort.
