South West New Zealand World Heritage Area

South West New Zealand is one of the most significant wilderness areas of the Southern Hemisphere. Known to Maori as Te Wahipounamu (the place of greenstone), the South West New Zealand World Heritage area includes Aoraki/Mt Cook, Westland/Tai Poutini, Fiordland and Mt Aspiring National Parks, covering 2.6 million hectares.

World Heritage is a global concept that identifies natural and cultural sites of world significance. That is - places so special that protecting them is of concern for all people. Some examples of animals and plants once found on the ancient super continent Gondwana live in the World Heritage Area.
