A campaign is under way to add another area of New Zealand to our National Park areas.
The Federated Mountain Clubs (FMC) on Friday launched the bid to form The Remarkables National Park in Otago and Southland.
The proposed park would include the Remarkables Mountain Range, along with the Hector/Tapuae o Uenuku, Garvie, Old Man/Kopuwai and Old Woman ranges.
FMC President Peter Wilson says the proposed park is a long-held dream of conservationists and recreationalists.
New Zealand currently has 13 national parks that are administered by the Department of Conservation. They are popular tourist destinations.
