Follow the Kiwi way these holidays
Published 19 December 2014
New Zealanders are encouraged to 'follow the Kiwi way' over the holidays by showing respect for neighbouring landholders when accessing the country's beaches, forests, rivers and mountains.
New Zealand Walking Access Commission Chief Executive Mark Neeson said New Zealand's striking outdoor environments provided fantastic opportunities for people to get out and enjoy themselves this summer but understanding how to act responsibly in these areas was necessary to maintain New Zealand's special access culture.
â€œMost landholders are happy to grant access across their property when asked. However, it is important that people using the outdoors for recreation repay that trust by acting responsibly.
â€œPeople who are unaccustomed to rural life are often unaware of behaviours we take for granted. A little extra knowledge can make all the difference.â€
