Te Urewera National Park

Established in 1954, this is the fourth largest national park. The landscape is remote and heavily forested, featuring the famous Lake Waikaremoana.

The park is the traditional home of Ngāi Tūhoe. In September 2012, Tūhoe accepted an offer of redress from the Crown. The deed of settlement is not yet signed as of March 2013. Once signed, Te Urewera will no longer be a national park, but will be co-governed by both Tūhoe and The Crown under the Te Urewera Act. Provisions will include protection of biodiversity, heritage, and public access.
