Built in 1970

Situated at the Collingwood end of the Heaphy Track, Brown Hut offers a simple 16-bunk facility with wood stove and fresh water. The hut doesn’t have lighting or gas-cooking facilities, but provides a good option if you want to make an early start up the hill to Perry Saddle Hut in the morning.
