4WD use encouraged by DOCís Conservation Management Strategy
Thursday, 11 July 2013, 3:01 pm
Press Release: Department of Conservation

4WD use encouraged by DOCís CMS

The Department of Conservation (DOC) wants more people to make the most of Otagoís four-wheel drive roads and rugged routes and is asking four-wheel drive enthusiasts to have their say about their hobby.

DOC has outlined its policy on four-wheel driving in its recently released draft Conservation Management Strategy (CMS) for Otago, which will guide DOCís management of conservation land, wildlife, cultural heritage and recreation in Otago for the next 10 years.

The CMS highlights areas that are available for four-wheel driving such as Oteake Conservation Park in Central Otago, Macetown and Skippers near Queenstown and Te Papanui near Dunedin.

Wanaka Area Office Manager Paul Hellebrekers says Otago has a range of challenging routes on conservation land which DOC would like to promote for four-wheel driving but he asks that drivers stay on the roads so as to protect the fragile high country terrain.

ďThere are many opportunities for four-wheel driving on public conservation land, especially on roads running through areas that were formerly pastoral leasehold land,Ē Mr Hellebrekers said.
