A Visitors Guide To New Zealand National Parks


Quick Overview

Informative overview of all New Zealand's National Parks.

New Zealanders are justifiably proud of their country's natural heritage, aptly described by the Maori as a "taonga", or "treasure". They enjoy endless recreational activities in this country's network of protected parks, reserves and wildlife sancturaries, five of which have been granted World Heritage status. The diverse natural landscapes and ecoloical habitats range from active volcanoes and glaciers to subtropical beaches and rainforests, allowing visitors to participate in a variety of outdoor pursuits. This book features 35 of these wilderness areas. Through the text, detailed maps, visitor information boxes and colour images, this book takes the reader on a journey through the natural wonders of this beautiful part of the world.
