Go to the glacier beyond the hut, it'll be the best free thing you do in New Zealand, trust me. We camped below it, but you can do it as an out and back day trip from the Fantail Falls car park quite easily. It took us less than 6hrs there and back over the two days.

It says 3h to the hut, took me 2h. It is steep steady climbing through the beech forest until you reach the bushline and a ridge walk. Beautiful Panorama on a clear day. Parking is limited, I had to wait until someone visiting only the falls left. First thing you do is crossing a river. I took my shoes off, it was almost knee deep. depending on the rain the days before you can/cannot cross it.
