    What happened to them? The mid okahu hut got burnt down. Bit of a shame.

    @johnd that first hut looks very much like HorseShoe Flat hut in lower Moerali but the hill behind is not big enough and not enough bush

    @chainsaw it is/was on the inland Kaikoura's. Dont know if many ever came across it, we were in there 10 yrs after it was built and the pots were still shiny

    They would regret it for sure if that happened.

    Heard they did that so they didn't have to go spend money on it. And the river crossing got dodgy.

    The amount of huts that DOC have destroyed is quite huge NZ wide ,includes rock bivs in areas that could save some poor sods life.

    Yep always was dodgy- Especially in a Toyota Corona
    But thatís why we love the great outdoors though isnít it??? I pulled out a camper van there the other week, stuck in the sand basically in that creek, bloody tourists.

    Just sad, every time we loose something like these huts we loose a large chunk of who we are and what some amazing people have done and seen in these areas...
    but to blame H&S as a way to bulldoze huts is wrong.

    Just on that, there was a proposal to remove rock cairns or knock them over, they have saved life. Lets hope that common sense prevails.

    Just the lot that will not see reason or have not come across anyone in a situation not realising what cairns represent ( Tin Range and the Whitcombe (Neave to the Pass) come to mind.
