Dumpling Hut | Milford Track
This is majorly airy and spacious. Four bunk rooms in two separate buildings with massive verandas and a short walk to an equally generous kitchen/living area.
There’s even an acceptable waterhole down at the Arthur River for a quick splash around for those who can’t wait for more private bathroom facilities back in civilisation.
