New Zealand is a beautiful country. Help keep our towns, cities, parks, beaches and native bush free from pollution and waste. Please also respect our unique flora and fauna. Be active and get involved in caring for the environment. It is everyone’s responsibility.
Freedom camping is permitted on public conservation land, except in areas where it is expressly prohibited or restricted to self contained vehicles. This is indicated by signage
In the spirit of Kaitiakitanga (guardianship) we ask that you become familiar with the information in this section and plan a holiday committed to leaving no trace of your trip for the collective benefit of current and future generations. ‘Camping Responsibly’ is not using the side of the road or the bush as a toilet – please use onboard or public facilities.
