Freshwater Landing Hut | Rakiura National Park, Stewart Island

Freshwater Landing Hut is an increasingly large clearing adjacent to the extreme brown, ie, tannic, Freshwater River. The hut is rather cramped for space both in the bunk spaces and the living area.

The side trip up Rocky Mountain is worth the effort if the weather allows views: Patterson Inlet/Whaka a Te Wera, Mt Rakeahua, Mason Bay and a few sandhills, the Freshwater valley, round to Mt Anglem/Hananui. Nice.
