Headed up the Wanganui River again, a bit further up this time. Hunters Hut is a 5 hour tramp from the road end. The DOC sign says 5hrs, and unless you’re insanely speedy at boulder-hopping, you won’t be much faster.
This spot has everything an amazing packraft trip should have – wonderful scenery, few people, rapids that require a bit of thought to manoeuvre…and a sweet little DOC hut.
Still stoked with my backyard!
