There is currently a new TV series which is currently being screened on TV ONE (Tuesdays 8.30pm) which is called "Wild about New Zealand".
Its a six-part series takes in all the beauty and idiosyncrasies of six of New Zealand's stunning and unique National Parks. The series showcases this country's dramatic topography, unique species, spectacular stories and the cast of thousands that fight every day to maintain and preserve the rich history and future of our national parks.
This timelapse video shows the wonderful landscapes that we have in New Zealand. Particularly this is showing the beauty of Tongariro National Park, which is one of my favourite places in the country.
Kiwis are, without a doubt, an outdoor species. With a landscape like ours, who wouldn’t be? Whether it’s tramping, fishing, hunting or driving stock across the high country, we’ll take any excuse to get outside. In fact, nearly half of us enjoy Department of Conservation protected land every year.
From back country huts way off the beaten track, to lodges located along well worn walkways, the Department of Conservation’s huts have long provided essential shelter for Kiwi outdoor enthusiasts and international tourists.
