Introduction

Welcome to your source of information about landslides in New Zealand.  This site summarises all you need to know in order to be prepared for a landslide, and what to do if one occurs.


If you are concerned about a slip affecting your home firstly make sure you and your family are safe.  If there’s an immediate risk to life or an occupied building, evacuate, warn your neighbours, and dial 111.


The study and remediation of landslides are part of the discipline of engineering geology. If you need professional advice it is recommended that you contact a registered Professional Engineering Geologist or a Chartered Engineer specialising in geotechnical engineering. Find out more here.
