THE Department of Conservation (DOC) and Tourism New Zealand (TNZ) have joined forces to promote a range of short and day walks.
Research to better understand exactly what kinds of walks Kiwis and international visitors are looking for will kick off soon. Once finalised, the research results will be used along with kiwi, community and stakeholder feedback to help inform what existing walks might be further promoted. These will be in areas that both meet visitor needs and are ready and willing to host more visitors.
“We know there is demand for a range of shorter or less challenging walking options to go alongside our Great Walks and help alleviate pressures at high use sites. The aim is to cater for a wider pool of visitors and enable them to engage with and appreciate New Zealand’s natural environment,” says DOC Director Tourism, Recreation and Heritage, Gavin Walker.
