South Ohau Hut


10 with mattresses and stove


1 hut ticket (hut category standard)


South Ohau hut is located on a prominant ledge above the Ohau river, surrounded by the sounds of rushing water and birdsong. The front balcony is a great place to relax and let the day go by.

Getting There

South Ohau hut can be accessed from Ohau roadend via the river (betware the gorge upstream from the South and North Ohau fork, its quite tricky) or the Waiopehu / Te Matawai hut loop. For the more adventurous you can drop in from the Mangahao.

Visited from Ohau roadend on 16th July. The hut was in good condition and was a welcome site after the trip through the gorge. I'm sure the gorge has got worse over the years but you can get through with a little rock climbing and/or swimming. design and content by Matthew Ravlich, copyright (c) 2009
