Hunters, hikers always welcome in Te Urewera - Tūhoe

From Checkpoint, 5:15 pm on 27 October 2022

Tūhoe says hunters and hikers will always be welcome in Te Urewera. 48 DOC huts deemed to be past their used by date are being dismantled.

Trampers and hunters who have used the huts in the past say it's like ripping the heart and soul out of the place.

But Tūhoe is promising much better facilites - and a real "visitor experience".
