St Winifreds Hut | Hakatere Conservation Park

A well cared for Canterbury Mountain Club hut that is available for use by the public.

Requires two crossings of the Havelock River which may not always be such an easy activity.

One bunk has been removed, so it has eight these days.

Constructed from the timber from the demolition of the old Havelock Hut, built in 1936.

There is plenty of reading material, but it may be better just to stare out the window across the river to those beautiful mountains opposite.

A memorable hut.
