Tailings Hut

Campsite in the Otago region

The trip to Tailings Hut is an adventure in itself; the 4WD track has numerous river crossings and steep rocky sections. Travelling through this vast tussock country with big skies reveals a Graham Sydney painting in every direction. The 4WD track is open to vehicles between Labour weekend and 30 April, but may be closed at any time if susceptible to damage.

Tailings Hut is a product of three huts with different histories. The two bunkrooms were once single man quarters used for construction of the Roxburgh Hydro Dam. The larger building, built in the 1930s by farmers who previously held the occupation licence for the site, is now the kitchen.
