This was the opening of a new Hut by the Dept. of Conservation in the Orongorongo Valley, Rimutaka Forest Park, east of Wellington. This Hut was built on the site of the original Hut built 1967-68 by myself and my mates in the Khandallah Venturer Unit (Senior Scouts). We had a reunion in February to take a last look at our handy work before the new hut was completed and our original demolished. This was when I shot the original. Google Earth presently shows the cleared site with our hut still intact.

This new hut sleeps 30 while ours had a comfort limit of 10.

The Khandallah Scout Group came to an arrangement with D.O.C. where they gave up the lease on the site in exchange for a guaranteed number of nights that Group members can stay. A good deal as Scouting isn't as ebullient as in our day and maintenance costs never go away.

For a more in depth history please visit KVU '68. Be warned....teenagers will be teenagers!
