Dodger Hut | Ruataniwha Conservation Park
A cosy four-bunk hut, with double-glazed windows, a new compact woodburner, and stainless steel bench.
Still in the wide part of the valley, and possible to drive to in your four-wheel-drive if you feel like a challenge. It’s right in the heart of tahr and deer territory, so no surprise hunters often use it, although it also finds favour with mountain climbers as a base camp.
