Club Hut

Club Hut (Awatiro)The club has a hut (Awatiro) at Waitomo. The hut is located in the heart of the Waitomo caving area, 10km past the Waitomo township on top of one of the highest hills in the region. It has superb views, and on a fine day there are good views of Mt Ruapehu.

The hut is an old farmhouse and has bunk style accommodation in three bedrooms.  Cooking facilities, pots & pans, plates and cutlery are all provided. We have a stock of firewood to keep the fireplace burning when the weather gets nippy!
