Photos from the Tongariro Crossing tramping track have been released and show the damage caused by flying volcanic debris.

The Ketetahi hut suffered extensive damage to both its interior and exterior, with rocks penetrating the roof and smashing outdoor amenities.

Boulders spewed out by Monday night’s eruption also damaged the tracks, wiping out some sections.

Ash covered parts of the track, creating a spectacular sight.
