Daphne Hut

8 to 10 person hut.It's in a stunning spot where the northern and western branches of the Tukituki converge. Note, there is no water tank. Water is collected from the river.

Access

Either from the end of Mill Rd. walking up the riverbed[3 Hrs]or Kashmir Rd via a ridge track[3 to 4 Hrs].Both ways either involve all or a small portion of river travel so is a fine weather trip only.Could also be reached from Longview Hut via Howletts hut[4 to 5 hours]but this way is above the bushline and is very exposed.
