Grassy Flat Hut


Has not been rated.


This is a standard ten-bunk hut in the Hokitika area, 12 km up the Styx River. The Grassy Flat historic site was once a thoroughfare for prospectors during the gold rush days. Fees apply. Bookings not required - first come, first served. Facilities include heating, mattresses, non-flush toilets and water (not treated - boil before use). Access to the Styx River is approximately 40 km inland of Hokitika. Follow the Kaniere/Kokatahi circuit road east from SH 6 in Hokitika. At Kokatahi turn left onto Kokatahi Rd and continue along for a good ten minutes. Access to the valley is on the right approximately 1 km after the Mark Wallace Styx River bridge. A gateway gives access to the river flats and a very rough 4WD track which terminates below a series of bluffs on the true right bank of the Styx River. Tracks to the hut: Arahura & Styx valleys tracks. 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.
