Waitutu Hut | Fiordland National Park
Similar configuration as Wairaurahiri Hut. Back in the 70s they must have had a Build-It-and-People-Will-Come mentality. I don’t think they are in fact coming.
The first half of the track from Wairaurahiri Hut is the boggiest of the entire South Coast Track. It gets better, ie, less boggy, west of Angus Burn.
Closer to the beach than Wairaurahiri Hut, and easier to find firewood.
