Clark A Frame Hut, Fiordland National Park

Clark A Frame Hut is a classic, metal-framed hut from around 1964. No heating, certainly no insulation as you look directly to the underside of the galvanised roofing or patchy reflective foil, and no real windows. No water tank either, and it’s an excursion to get water from the flowing stream.

It has a sleeping platform that accommodates four mattresses, but it would be cosy if they were all occupied. And yes, it is sited at the end of a very long and extremely boggy clearing, and it never seems to get closer.

Basic shelter, somewhat akin to staying in a garden shed.
