News...
  • Greyneys Shelter campsite will be closed from 20th February 2017 to 7th March 2017 whilst redevelopment work takes place in conjunction with the highway realignment.
  • Harper Pass Route landslides - There are several large land-slips in the vicinity of Harper Bivouac (Harper Pass). If the river is low they can be traversed with relative safety, however if the river is high there is some risk of falling into the torrent! Absolute care and good decision making is essential!
  • Casey Hut has burnt down - Casey Hut in the Poulter River catchment burnt down in late 2015. The next closest hut is Trust-Poulter, 5km upstream on the true-right. Good camping sites, water (Casey Stream) and a toilet remains at the old Casey Hut site.
  • Highway 73 is undergoing reconstruction on the eastern approaches to Arthur's Pass Village. Expect delays and detours from time to time. This work is not expected to be complete until late 2016.
  • The following bivouacs no longer exist! - Hallelujah Bivouac (Andrews Stream), Thompson Bivouac (Thompson Stream), Top Cox Bivouac (Cox River), Waterfall Bivouac (Row Stream)
