East Harbour Hunting Ballot 2019 should be open around mid to late January 2019.


Pig Hunting Permits are not available - valid from 1 May through to 30 September each year

Greater Wellington Regional Council offers the opportunity for members of the public to undertake pig hunting in East Harbour Regional Park. Permits will be issued for a 5 month period each year from 1 May to 30 September.

The hunting will play a part in controlling animals in the park, and also provide an opportunity for the recreational hunting of pigs within a designated hunting area in the Northern Forest Block.

Permits for non-firearm use will be issued on application. Please note Bow Hunters are also prohibited. Dog registration numbers or micro-chip numbers are required prior to permits being issued (maximum of 3 dogs).

Please email to apply for a permit.
