Cost

Free (hut category shelter)


Description

While Waiotauru hut sits in a nice location on the banks of the river unfortunately it suffers from easy accessibility along Wiaotauru Rd for 4wd, MotoX and mountain biking bringing in both the good and bad. I couldn't bring myself to stay in the hut on my first visit around 10 years ago because of the broken bottles on the floor; it wasn't even fit for the many rats in residence. Thankfully things look to be improving as Waiotauru Rd becomes less friendly to wheeled transport but I always take a tent just in case.


Getting There

Waiotauru hut can be reached from Otaki Forks roadend or from Kapakapanui. Nearby huts include Parawai hut, Renata hut, Kapapapnui hut and Kime hut (via snowy river). If you come from Otaki Roadend you can take either the river or the siddle track but beware of the many slips along the track.
