As a result of the Te Urewera Act, administration of Te Urewera has been passed to the Te Urewera Board which comprises joint Tūhoe and Crown membership.
Under the Act, Te Urewera is no longer a national park, but a separate legal entity for whom the board members act as trustees.
Te Urewera is still open to the public and the Department of Conservation will continue to work in Te Urewera and maintain the tracks and facilities in conjunction with the Board.
