DANNY : DE HEKDANNY : DE HEK is dedicated to providing informative and unbiased online Accommodation, Transportation and Travel Tourism information. Established in 1995, my extensive network provides comprehensive travel guides for popular destinations and top resources for activities and ‘all things New Zealand’.

This guide to New Zealand Forest Parks has been compiled by the DANNY : DE HEK to assist outdoor enthusiasts. New Zealand’s 20 Forest Parks preserve much of the ancient beauty and grandeur of our native forests. The parks are administered by the Department of Conservation (DOC), which protects these fragile areas from damage by introduced predators and from further inroads by human activity.
