The huts hold a special place in the hearts of generations. They have bought families together; to get back to the basics, grow a love of the outdoors and to build close friendships amongst a unique community.
In 1978 the Orongorongo Club was established by a number of regular users of the valley who shared a common interest in the preservation of the valley’s unique heritage. The club particularly supports the continued presence of huts and their extended use for future generations.
Hidden away amongst native bush near Wellington, the Orongorongo Valley's private huts have provided a haven for local families since the early 1920s.
