Green Camping Guide

Home:Posts:About New Zealand:Green Camping Guide

Freedom Camping or Free Camping is still allowed in New Zealand. However, due to the actions of a few selfish people, this may change in the future. Campers defecating in pristine camping areas and dumping human waste from campervans, often near waterways, is a very real problem. Also, the amount of garbage left behind at some sites is disgusting to say the least.

The rules for cyclists mirror those for the drivers of other vehicles. Cyclists should keep to the left and indicate turns and stopping maneuvers as should the drivers of all vehicles. Many New Zealand roads have dedicated cycle lanes on the extreme left of the road and cyclists are expected to ride in these lanes.

New Zealand has a great many camping grounds and caravan/motorhome parks spread the length and breadth of the country. These facilities range from sophisticated sites with all manner of services and conveniences, to simple DoC (Department of Conservation) sites in wilderness areas, where facilities may be limited to a toilet.
