Waiau Hut | St James Conservation Area

Six bunks? Six??

A brand new hut built to take a few of the 1000+ Te Araroa hikers now streaming over from Blue Lake via Waiau Pass. Somehow the size seems inadequate, DOC seems to have misjudged actual numbers on TA, but eventually camping sites will be formed for the inevitable overflow.

Double glazed, good insulation, and a small woodburner will keep it cosy in the cooler months.

And it also solves the problem of not having a toilet between Blue Lake Hut and Anne Hut.
