Mintaro Hut | Milford Track
Mintaro Hut was completely rebuilt after being damaged in a storm in February 2020. It has been resited about 2 km from the previous location in a considerably sunnier location that is not in a rockfall area. Also now double glazed so it is a considerable improvement in accommodation.
Any view is whack into the sheer cliffs of Mount Balloon which may, or may not, be replete with numerous waterfalls. In any case, you will feel you are right in the heart of the Fiordland mountains.
