Welcome to the New Zealand Walking Access Commission’s online public access mapping system, the Walking Access Mapping System (WAMS). WAMS has been designed to assist the public to identify land in New Zealand open to recreational access on foot and to provide other access related information.


You can find out more about the information shown in the mapping system by reading the help guide. For information about errors and accuracy see Survey and Database Errors and Accuracy Survey and Database Errors and Accuracy.
