Pick up a brush


Thank you New Zealand! We had a phenomenal response from people keen to help protect the places that have sheltered us for generations.

Registrations to help paint the first 26 huts have now closed and painting has begun! Due to the amazing response we received not everyone will be able to help us paint this time around. However, there will be plenty more opportunities for you to get involved.

The relevant DOC offices are now organising painting of huts and the selection process for volunteers.

Be sure to like us on Facebook to keep up to date with painting progress around the country.

Not all 26 huts are able to be painted this season due to site issues such as high altitudes, challenging terrain and limited daylight hours. These remaining huts will be painted next season when the weather improves once more – watch this space!
