Does anyone have the Lat and Long coordinates or a kmz file showing the camp.
I'm heading in there next month for a meat hunt

Cheers
  

If it takes only one careless match to start a bush fire, how come it takes me a whole box to start a camp fire.

Found this. Not exactly what you're after but may help a bit.

Location
Te Puke Hut is located in the upper central region of the Kaweka Forest Park at the southern end of the Te Pukeohikarua Tops.

Access
Te Puke Hut is ideally positioned to allow hunts in all directions, over varying types of terrain. As one of the park’s highest huts, the climate here is subject to extreme variations. The weather can also affect helicopter flying, and strong winds and/or poor visibility are not uncommon.

North by the open tops
From the hut helipad, follow the main track west towards the trig. A hunter’s track branches off to the north and you can follow this across the open tops for approximately 2 kilometres. Several ridges fall towards the west along this route and provide good access to hunting.

The immediate access to the east (headwaters of the Mangaturutu Stream) is steep.

Hunters can reach a campsite (known as the ‘Te Puke exclosure’ site) by heading north along a forested ridge to the campsite helipad (2 hours walking time from Te Puke Hut). Many hunting opportunities are available along this route with good results often obtained north of the exclosure area down towards to Mangatainoka Hut.

By the southeast ridge track towards Mangaturutu Hut
From the helipad, follow the marked track towards Mangaturutu Hut. Via ridges and gullies on both sides the Mangaturutu catchment to the north or the Omarukokere (Omar) Stream to the south can be accessed.
