Palmer Hut | Ka Whata Tu o Rakihouia/Clarence Conservation Park

Sited on a rocky bluff overlooking the Clarence River, with views both up and down stream.

It’s a big double-glazed hut to accommodate the rafters about six hours paddle downstream after launching from the Acheron landing. And occasional hunting parties who either attempt to exterminate the considerable goat presence, or complain about the lack thereof.
