The newest hut on the Heaphy Track (2014) is the last word in comfort and modernity. The hut features 26 bunks with mattresses, solar lighting, double glazed windows, gas cooking facilities, toilets, fresh water and a wood-fired heater. Situated in the MacKay Downs forest at the western edge of the alpine section of the track at an elevation of approximately 750 metres, the MacKay Hut affords spectacular views of the Tasman Sea, the Heaphy River mouth and the wonderfully wild West Coast on clear days.
