North Ohau Hut from Poads Road End

Paul Hanson the artist and I heading off to North Ohau hut for Saturday night and to check out the waterfull up the North Ohau river on Sunday.

  • Remove any religious matter from huts.
  • Saturday - Drive to Poads Road end and walk to North Ohau hut; sample some whisky and sleep.
  • Sunday- Walk up to the waterfull and then out to the road end. Drive back to Wellington
The malt for this trip was Laphroig 10 YO.


We really wanted to go to Mangahao hut and drove to the end of the road, but freaked when we saw a nasty tramping club van at the end along with many cars. Dont want to be in a hut full of them tramping club members. So we headed off and decided on North Ohau. A few hours of extra driving, but it was worth it, as North Ohau was tramping club free.


Walked up to the waterfull.
Got back to the car just before dark and then drove back to Wellington.
