Moonlight Tops Hut | Paparoa Track Great Walk

Moonlight Tops Hut was built recently as part of the new Paparoa Track Great Walk. That means five-star accommodation with double glazing, heavy insulation, big picture windows, LED lighting, two bedrooms.

The hut has a great view of the high limestone bluffs to the north, and around to the Tasman Sea.

The question is why there are only 20 bunks, as the living room could accommodate twice that number of people. And the demand will certainly be there once word gets out.
