Parks and recreation

There are more than 50,000 hectares of parks in Wellington Region just waiting for you to explore.

If your idea of beauty is a remote beach, or a windswept bluff with a lighthouse, you’ll find that. How about lush native bush or wetlands teeming with wildlife? You’ll find that too. There are rivers and ranges, farmland and forests, seabeds and sand dunes, and even film sets.
