Visit a Wetland
Wetlands are wonderful places to visit. As well as their great natural beauty they provide opportunities for walking, boating, canoeing, bird watching and fishing. To help people visit wetlands the NWT has produced a series of wetland trails and is building an online directory of those you can safely visit.
Click the flags on the map to find wetlands in each region that you can visit. So far the directory features wetlands in six regions, thanks to support from Northland, Auckland, Canterbury and Greater Wellington regional councils, Tasman District Council, and the Department of Conservation (DoC).
You can also see 40 wetlands to visit in an online version of the publication, Magical Places: 40 Wetlands to Visit in New Zealand.
Special thanks to the Mercury Employee Community Fund for supporting our online wetlands directory.
