Abel Tasman National Park

The Coast Track

Whariwharangi Hut was built in 1898 by John Handcock from timbers floated ashore through surf from the coastal steamer, "Lady Barkly". John Handcock lived here with his family for 15 years. It was last lived in as a home in 1926. In 1980, it was restored for its new role as a tramping hut.

On the short walk from the hut to Whariwharangi Beach you pass through the CAMPING AREA which has filtered drinking water, fireplaces, flush toilet and 20 tent sites for up to 40 campers. (Not a beachfront camp).
