One of four Slab-built huts in the Waiau catchment (the others being Rogers, Te Waiotekapiti and ???). This is a pleasant 6 bunk hut - full of character but also practical. The original slab-built structure has been clad in iron, and whilst not rodent-proof is cozy and weathertight. There is tank water and a sink - though the stream is only 20m away, and a large (smoky) open fire. A large covered deck has been wrapper around 2 sides.
The hut sits in large grassy clearings beside the Te Totora Stream. Topo50 maps (1st ed) show it some 400m downriver of its actual location.
