The Auckland University Tramping Club Hut is over 60 years old, and the oldest in the Waitakere ranges. It is looked after by the Club but able to be used by public. Its name is Ongaruanuku which means 'place of the learned people' in Maori.
Visitors are advised to take the Waitakere recreation and track guide with them. The Waitakere Regional Park is a large track network and this tramping hut can be quite difficult to find. A map can be downloaded from this website: http://www.topomap.co.nz/ongaruanuku-map
