Specimen Point Hut | Kahurangi National Park

Specimen Point Hut has a magnificent location in the Mohikinui River Gorge, and you can even see the view out the windows from the living area.

On the other hand, it lacks bench space, and what’s with bunk space on a windowless veranda? More crazy steps to get into the hut.

Just don’t get this hut design.
