Welcome to New Zealand's National Parks

New Zealand's national parks contain some of our most treasured wilderness areas. They cover more than 30,000 square kilometres, full to the brim with beautiful, natural scenery ready to explore.

Visit New Zealand’s national parks if you want to discover the natural soul of the land. The real gems of this country, the national parks preserve the natural heritage, forests, wildlife and landscapes, close to – and in some cases, exactly – as it was before man was here.
