Heaphy hut

Heaphy hut

The Heaphy hut, near the mouth of the Heaphy River, has long been a haven for trampers walking the Heaphy Track. Situated on the edge of a lagoon, it is an idyllic place for relaxing, fishing or swimming.

The Heaphy River is named after Charles Heaphy, who explored the rugged coastline with Thomas Brunner and Māori guides in 1846. Although the Heaphy Track bears his name, he never travelled inland along it.
