Waiopehu Hut


18 with mattresses but no stove


1 hut ticket (hut category standard)


Waiopehu sits in a delightful location just above the bushline on Waiopehu ridge. As with all the new Tararua huts, the balcony area is large and inviting with a fantastic view out over the Manawatu.

Getting There

Waiopehu can be accessed from Ohau Road end via the long and boring Waiopehu ridge or the more interesting Gable End track. You can also get to Waiopehu from TeMatawai and South Ohau hut forming quite a nice loop for the more adventuous.

Visited hut with Sandy on 17th July from Te Matawai hut over Waiopehu. Hut in excellent condition although a little cold.
