DOC and i-SITE sharing our public spaces with visitors
A new Department of Conservation (DOC) visitor information hub in Rotorua’s central i-SITE will help visitors to Rotorua enjoy our great outdoors in a safe and respectful way.
The new area, dedicated to public spaces managed by DOC, was officially opened today and provides information on short local walks as well as New Zealand’s Great Walks.
DOC Supervisor Caraline Abbott says the new space has been designed as a useful resource for both locals and visitors.
“We’ve looked at the visitor enquiries received over the past five years and focused our new design to make sure we hit the nail on the head in terms of providing the right information about how to get off the beaten track and enjoy Rotorua and the rest of New Zealand safely and in an environmentally responsible way.”
Destination Rotorua’s Executive Manager Visitor Services, Graham Brownrigg says that DOC’s presence in the i-SITE provides real value for people seeking ways to enjoy the beauty of the district’s natural attractions.
“DOC and i-SITE visitor services have been co-located for more than five years and it’s a great way of recognising the importance of the natural environment to Rotorua’s appeal. DOC and Destination Rotorua work together to promote responsible tourism in support of New Zealand’s Tiaki Promise and this new space is a visible sign of our shared commitment.”
