Anatoki Forks Hut | Kahurangi National Park
Built by NZFS/NZDA it is a light-filled and spacious six bunker, with a famous feature seldom found working in other DOC huts: a hot water tank, and a shower, complete with floral shower curtain.
Hard to picture the surroundings as an encampment for numbers of gold prospectors, but high stacked rocks show some of the effort put in.
