Monowai Hut, Fiordland National Park
Sited on a bank above the lake with great views to the south of the lake and mountains beyond. That’s all positive.
Like many huts accessed by boat, the majority of visitors come that way as it’s only 40 minutes from the boat ramp, it has been poorly treated and could do with some DOC love. It has been re-lined to suggest insulation to the walls.
But it has a damp and shaded location, with sandflies an issue for much of the year.
