Little Wanganui Gorge Shelter | Kahurangi National Park

One of the smallest structures around that is intended for sleeping. She’s mighty tiny, but okay accommodation for solo travellers or two good friends.

The insulated panel design means that condensation is a problem here, and also asphyxiation if you use your stove without the door or window open.

Shown on LINZ maps as Wangapeka Bivouac.
