Established in 1987, the Department of Conservation (DOC) oversaw tracks in national parks, forest parks and other conservation areas. It improved tracks and huts and brought in standard signage – yellow on a green background. This signpost is near Lake Howden, west of Lake Wakatipu, at the junction of three DOC tracks: the Routeburn (one of the ‘Great Walks’), the Caples and the Greenstone.
