Kia Ora Hut is located at 850m above sea level, below Du Cane Range.
The hut has two main rooms and a covered wet gear room at the entrance. There are lots of tent platforms scattered around and a lovely picnic table and platform just beside the hut. On a clear evening, head out to the helipad to to watch the cliff faces above glow at sunset.
Kia Ora Creek runs just behind the hut. An informal and slippery track leads down beside the creek on the bridge over the waterfall.
