Oamaru - Boyd Track, Kaimanawa Forest Park, North Island

(07) 384 7106


This is a serviced 16-bunk hut in the Kaimanawa Forest Park, nestled below the Boyd Rocks looking over the Ngaruroro Valley. Fees apply. Bookings not required - first come, first served. Facilities include heating, mattresses, non-flush toilets and water (not treated - boil before use). To access the hut, there is an airstrip in the valley for private use with DOC permit. Or make it part of a multi-day hike from either Taharua Road or Clements Road ends. The hut itself has a central kitchen area with wood burner, table and a sink with internal water supply. There are separate bunk rooms to either side, each sleeps eight. A wide verandah runs along the front of the hut with great views out on to the valley and airstrip below. For an even better view, head out behind the hut past the water tanks. There is a track (with a few markers) that heads up above the bush line to the Boyd Rocks. It is a steep climb, but worth it for the magnificient panorama over the whole Kaimanawa Forest Park. Before you go, buy 1 Serviced Hut Ticket (green for adults, orange for youth) or 3 Standard Hut Tickets (blue for adults, yellow for youth) for each night's stay. Put these in the honesty box at the hut. Or buy a Backcountry Hut Pass for unlimited use at most Serviced and Standard huts for a 6 or 12 month period.
