Want to Paint Your Community or Club Hut?

As part of the ‘Protecting Our Place partnership between the Department of Conservation and Dulux New Zealand, a ‘Community Contribution’ scheme has been created to provide the opportunity for community and club managed huts on the public conservation lands to be painted.

Any hut or shelter on public conservation land that is available for public use is eligible for paint under this scheme.
