Mikonui Spur Bivvy
A traditional forestry bivvy that has braved many a Tasman Sea storm, on an exposed ridge top above the Mikonui Valley, Westland. Sound condition. No mattresses. Water supply from nearby tarn.
This NZFS biv was built in 1960. It was probably the last of the flat iron roof bivs built in Westland.
The easiest route is up the spur from the Mikonui - Dickson Rivers confluence. The track was recut by a DOC contractor in autumn 2011. It is no longer the "grovel" it once was.
