The Department of Conservation have announced that hut bookings on the Milford Track over Christmas are sold out.
The Department of Conservation said hut bookings on the Milford Track over Christmas sold out within 15 minutes on Tuesday.
Those wishing to use the hut have to pay $140 a night for a bed in a DOC hut on the Milford Track, and $130 per night on the Kepler and Routeburn Tracks.
Mr Shearer said a rough breakdown showed about 63 percent of bookings were made by New Zealanders and the rest from overseas.
Last year it was an even 50/50 split.
DOC said there were still spaces available in other huts on the Great Walks.
