The Department of Conservation is the government agency tasked with conserving New Zealand’s natural and historic heritage.
Through protecting and maintaining New Zealand's natural heritage, and ensuring more people get outdoors, the Department of Conservation (DOC) aims to make New Zealand the greatest living space on Earth.
Visit one of New Zealand's 13 national parks and marvel at the diverse, natural scenery. Or put on your hiking boots and explore vast wilderness areas with a variety of walks and hikes, from 20 minutes to several days.
If you're looking for unique accommodation, DOC also has a range of options in conservation places, including campsites, lodges and huts.
