The Department is blessed with more than 72,000 recreation, historic and infrastructure assets with a replacement value of over a billion dollars– everything from huts and other buildings, signage and interpretation, tracks and walkways, bridges and structures, to campgrounds and toilets!  Don't miss this opportunity to help DOC manage these great assets.


Our Asset Planners play a critical role in ensuring we have effective management, maintenance and replacement programmes in place for all our various assets.
