Great hut, can drive up to the hut with a 2WD just fine. Water from a stream so we just drove some in since there is farm land the whole way up to the hut. Not a bad long drop. Visited by a tiny mouse in the night trying to get into our sealed trash so we hung it from the wire from the ceiling. There is a picnic table. Also only 5km up to Princhester Saddle
