Access: This was an interesting trip, along a 6.8km tramping track and took us three hours, carrying our one year old. We started from Borland Biv on Borland Road. The track started with a gentle uphill section through the bush. We then walked down to a swampy section, which was a lot wetter on our way to the hut than on the return journey. After another bushy section, we walked through a dry swamp before climbing over a bit of a hill. We found a nice lunch spot on the lake front before following the lake round to the hut. The track was easy to follow, although is a little rough in sections.
There is a side trip to Island Lake, and on to the Clark Huts if you are really keen. We only went as
far as the island look out.
Hut features: This is a standard 12 bunk hut with platform bunks. It has a closed fire. There is a water tank outside, plus another tap. Inside there is a table with bench seats that have two sides built into the hut.
There are beautiful views of the lake from the hut and it is only a very short walk along boardwalk to
get to the lake where is possible to go swimming.
Negatives: A guided group uses the hut on a Tuesday night. We were at the hut while they when they arrived, and found the group to be courteous.
