Atiwhakatu Hut

Another hut from the days before they were replaced with motels infested with lycra-clad poofters who don't even know what a Swandri looks like and have never cooked over burning wood!

It's still there and the access is even easy enough for an old broken-arse to hobble in!

Waiotauru Hut

Used this as a base camp for many a hunting trip. Quite a few beer-drinking trips too!

Kapakapanui Hut

I have fond memories of this hut. It was the first one I visited in the Tararuas in 1976.

I well remember the rat in my mattress that had to be killed before bedtime!

WWI Memorial

117 Linden Trees were planted here after WWI. Each representing a dead serviceman from this town.

The town now has a population of about 2000. It was smaller then...

The Shed Collection

Every man needs a shed- this is one of mine.
