The Mud Hut is a reconstructed building made of sod mud bricks and it was originally built by the Chinese. Nestled in the high country on private land.

The Mud Hut is located at Welcome Rock Trails, a 27km, hand built single track mountain bike/walking trail located in the mountains. We also have two other huts available for bookings. Charges apply to use the trail for riding or walking, see our website Welcome Rock for more details.

Located on the Eastern side of the Roaring Lion Trail. Up to four people may sleep on bunk beds, and there is a large open fireplace with wood stacked inside. A two burner gas element (with gas). The hut has basic utensils, pans and cutlery. There is a gas heated outdoor bath, for you to enjoy soaking in the view.

You must provide your own sleeping bag for the overnight stay unless hiring from us. Please provide substantial food for lunch, dinner and breakfast.
