Te Totara Hut


Has not been rated.


This is a standard six-bunk hut in the Te Urewera area. This historic hut was built for deer culler accommodation in 1952. Fees apply. Bookings not required - first come, first served. Facilities include heating, mattaresses, non-flaush toilets and water (not treated - boil before use). Te Totatara Hut is a small, single storey timber building 4.2 m x 4.2 m in size, with one door, two windows and a fireplace. It has a low verandah on the eastern side and has a gabled pitched roof. The hut is primarily constructed from split totara slabs and framing members which are clearly visible on the interior. The roof and verandah are sheathed in corrugated iron, and the building in flat galvanised sheeting. It is located in a small clearing, beside Parahaki Stream, in the south-west of Te Urewera and is managed by the DOC Aniwaniwa office. Before you go, buy 1 Standard Hut Ticket (blue for adults, yellow for youth) for each night's stay. Put this in the honesty box at the hut. Or buy a Backcountry Hut Pass that gives unlimited use at most Standard and Serviced huts for a 6 or 12-month period.
