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)
