Gouland Downs Hut & Campsite

Tap Water

This is a classic old-school back-country hut with considerable charm and character. The hut has eight bunks with mattresses, a wood heater, toilet facilities and fresh water. Please note, there are no gas cooking facilities and no lighting in the hut

Great Spotted Kiwi can often be heard and sometimes seen in the evenings here and there are often Blue Ducks (Whio) in the creeks and streams nearby. The hut is nestled in an enchanting stand of beech forest and there are numerous limestone caves and formations close by.
