GWC Parks

This is the area covered by the Wellington Regional Council which is known as the Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC).

Most parks require you to get a key, pay a bond and apply for a permit (manually, not online). Unfortunately, Wellington does not have a network pass, like Auckland, that gives access to all the Regional Parks yet.
