Anchorage Hut

This is a 34-bunk hut located on the Abel Tasman Coast Track in the Motueka area.

Set on the splendid north facing beach, just unveiled in October 2013, Anchorage Hut is genuine high class accommodation, ie, flush toilets, double glazed, filtered water, four separate bedrooms, etc.

Basically so-called backcountry huts don’t come any more luxurious than this.
