Gouland Downs Hut | Heaphy Track, Kahurangi National Park
The historic Gouland Downs Hut has plenty of character, ie, a low flying ceiling, and a fireplace where you can watch the flames at night but otherwise not quite so well appointed as the other more recently constructed huts on the track. Then again, you can’t create instant character.
There are a few limestone caves nearby that can be explored.
