Power is vested in the Governor to make reserves of Crown lands for public purposes; and for the recreation, convenience, and amusement of the people;

For the purposes of agricultural and pastoral associations;

For the growth and preservation of timber, and for the preservation of the native fauna;

For the use, support, and education of the Maori people.

Large reserves are also set aside as endowments for public education, which is free in New Zealand.

Lands containing natural curiosities, or scenery of national interest, are also reserved by the State.

Educational reserves are vested in the various Education Boards, but these lands may be brought under the Land Act at the request of the body having control over such reserves.
