Like the idea of combining nature with art? You’ll feel like a kid again as you lace up your boots and head off with the whānau in search of these bespoke miniature huts hidden in urban reserves and beaches. 

Please note, the huts are located a short walk from carparking and railway stations in natural environments such as beaches and bush trails. Locating the huts may require navigating uneven terrain.

Writers Mandy Hager, Apirana Taylor, Chris Maclean and Renée have gifted each hut with its own short story. 

Online audio description by Perry Piercy will be available for the huts. The writers’ stories will be available as recordings online as well. All this audio can be enjoyed in situ with the huts or from your own sofa, whatever suits you best. 

All audios will be available to download from our website from February 2020.

Kāpiti Coast huts are located a short walk from carparking and railway stations and are in natural environments such as beaches and bush trails. Locating the huts may require navigating uneven terrain off track.
