Wire Yards Hut | Oteake Conservation Park

A lovely presence on a tussock landscape that is seldom used due to the better amenity at Ida Railway Hut not far away.

The old 1934 musterers’ hut was built from materials packed in by mules. Was renovated in 2016 with good bunks and benches installed. The dirt floor remains and it is still unlined and uninsulated. The open fire chimney gives good ventilation, but there’s no firewood for kilometres around.
