Fosters Hut | Wakamarina Track, Mt Richmond Forest Park
Fosters Hut was originally built near Appletree Gully, the hut was moved to a more accessible location on the ridge top. It then became known as Fosters Ridge Camp Hut, or Fosters Hut. That’s what the sign inside states.
The splendid view over the Wairau valley is slowly being lost due to the growth of trees. Get there quick! You might like it. The hut has a pleasant ambiance.
