Fidgit Bivvy | Ka Whata Tu o Rakihouia Conservation Park

Judging by the almost 20-year old hutbook, Fidgit Bivvy is rarely visited, mostly by goat cullers, who seem to get about 100 goats each for a three-day stay.

This little bivvy is in good condition. DOC has built a decent deck and the interior is well maintained.

Located a short distance up a tributary, and not visible from Fidget Stream, or until you are almost at the door. With wild rose and matagouri taking over the river flats, you just bash up the stream, crossing as required and that happens to be numerous times. Fidget Stream is generally low, but it clearly roars through after heavy rain.
