New Hut Manager

We are delighted to have David Brailsford on board as the new Manager for the Rod Donald Hut. Having been the builder who converted the original Hut he is more than familiar with the building and set up so it is great to have him on board. David also played a pivotal role in the recent renovation of the Ōtamahua Hut, the new family friendly DOC hut on Quail Island, with his clever and innovative building and design ideas. David is now keeping a close eye on the Rod Donald Hut for us, checking up regularly to ensure everything is well stocked and running smoothly. The Hut has once again been very popular over the summer period, with trampers, school groups and lots of families enjoying this great facility.
