Find out about the diverse mahi Herenga ā Nuku does, from its large strategic projects to its day-to-day support for people who access the outdoors.
Maps and public information
Our Access Mapping System is a series of interactive maps that show New Zealanders exactly where they have public access in the outdoors.
The Commission helps facilitate resolutions when there is a dispute between two or more parties over outdoor access. We have a formal disputes resolution process.
Enhanced Access Grants
We administer a contestable grants scheme to support projects aimed at enhancing access to New Zealand's great outdoors.
The Overseas Investment Act
One of our interesting jobs is to look at applications by overseas investors to buy sensitive land. Our role is to consider if there are any access opportunities.
Regional Trail Strategy Development
Herenga ā Nuku works closely with local government, iwi partners and community stakeholders to support the development of long-term tracks and trails strategies.
