New Zealand National, Forest & Maritime Parks
New Zealand's first national park, Tongariro, was gifted to the people of New Zealand in 1887 by the paramount chief of the Ngati Tuwharetoa, Te Heuheu Tukino IV. It was the fourth national park to be set aside anywhere in the world. There are now 14 national parks throughout the country, supplemented by 19 forest parks with a lesser protected status, three maritime parks, and nearly 4000 regional parks and reserves of various sizes.
Access and charges
Parks & protected areas are open all year. There is no charge to go into the parks, or to use basic facilities such as visitor centres, tracks, toilets or picnic places. A charge is made for some park information, brochures and to stay overnight in camping areas and in most back-country huts (hut tickets or passes must be bought before the trip; details from Department of Conservation offices). Many parks also offer commercial sightseeing, education tours and transport.
Permits or licences are needed for hunting & fishing. Dogs are not allowed in national parks, but may be allowed into other parks with a permit. Enquire at a Department of Conservation office near the park.…
