Forest Parks

::Forest Parks

This guide to New Zealand Forest Parks has been compiled by the New Zealand Information Network to assist outdoor enthusiasts. New Zealand’s 20 Forest Parks preserve much of the ancient beauty and grandeur of our native forests. The parks are administered by the Department of Conservation (DOC), which protects these fragile areas from damage by introduced predators and from further inroads by human activity.

The lovely lakes of the Hurunui District are a perfect hideaway for rest, relaxation and easy-going adventure. Spectacular lakes nestle in a high country basin. Here you can indulge yourself in some pleasant activities like walking, bird watching, photography, fishing or hunting. ‘Satisfy your thirst for life’ is what the Hurunui District promotions say.

Come and explore one of our least-known wilderness areas, hidden away in the southernmost part of the South Island. Here life is unhurried and moves in synch with nature. Catlins Forest Park is well off the beaten track, straddling the border between Otago and Southland. It is found the Southern Scenic Route, 50 km from Invercargill and 100 km from Dunedin.
