Are there any roads we are not allowed to travel on?

If you have not driven any gravel road, you have not seen New Zealand! SO, you are allowed on all named roads and DOC camp-site access roads.

You are not allowed to travel on a beach, through a river or salt water, or on a road that is in such poor condition that it damages the vehicle including:
  • Fire trails
  • Beaches, sand, tracks, fields or paddocks,
  • Ninety Mile Beach (Northland)
  • Ball Hutt Road (Mt Cook)
  • Skippers Road (Queenstown)
