Tiaki PromiseProtect, Preserve & Respect New Zealand
New Zealand is jam-packed with some incredible scenery. Our natural attractions are some of our most visited, but also our most precious. Please help to protect these places by minimising your personal effect on your surroundings.
Keep NZ Clean
Rubbish in our environment not only looks bad, but it can be a life-sentence for animals and birds that may ingest it, or get caught in it. Wherever you travel, please use the rubbish bins available or take your rubbish with you. It is also important to use designated toilet facilities on your trip. Public toilets can be found in most towns, just Google it, or call into a local shop and ask.
New Zealand roads may be different from what you are used to, so allow extra time to travel so you don't need to rush. There are many amazing places to stop, rest, walk, snack, and take in the views. If you are hiring a car upon your arrival in New Zealand, please be sure to read any information about New Zealand road rules, as they may differ from country to country. It will all help to keep yourself and others safe.
When you are heading into the outdoors, be prepared for all conditions, especially if you are heading into an alpine environment. Get advice from locals, the Department of Conservation Visitors Centres are a good place to start. If you are undertaking a multi-day walk in Fiordland, this gear list may help you prepare.
Show respect to the environment and also to others. New Zealander's are influenced by Western culture as well as tikanga Māori (Māori values & knowledge). While some of the customs and traditions of New Zealand can be explained, the best thing to do is 'travel with an open heart and mind' and learn and enjoy the journey.
