I've had a look at this question: How to add a bounding box filter to this leaflet WFS request? and have been trying to work out how to get it to work in a different projection system, specifically EPSG:2193 in this case.

My stack is currently SQL Server -> Geoserver -> WFS in Leaflet.

I have already done the following:

So far, I'm aware that Leaflet can load WFS through a GeoJSON call. It is primarily the GeoJSON call I'm having trouble with I think. The javascript code (see below) passes the wfs GetFeature call alright, but Geoserver does not seem to listen to the BBOX parameter, or something along those lines. In other words, I can't get the right vector features to display because the WFS getFeature request only returns the top items from the database.

EDIT: I've changed some configurations in geoserver Data -> Layers -> Edit Layer so it might work now:

enter image description here

My skeleton html is currently as follows:

<!DOCTYPE html>

    <meta charset="utf-8" />

    <script src="./src/proj4.js"></script>
    <script src="./src/proj4leaflet.js"></script>
      //insert javascript here


and the javascript part look something like this. Note that my WFS is deployed from localhost so the script technically won't work.

    //Set EPSG:2193 projection system here
    var nztm = new L.Proj.CRS('EPSG:2193',
       '+proj=tmerc +lat_0=0 +lon_0=173 +k=0.9996 +x_0=1600000 +y_0=10000000 +ellps=GRS80 +towgs84=0,0,0,0,0,0,0 +units=m +no_defs', {
         resolutions: [
           8192, 4096, 2048, 1024, 512, 256, 128

     // initialize the map on the "map" div with a given center and zoom
     var map = L.map('map', {
       center: [-43.80752, 172.94770, ],
       zoom: 15,
       //crs: nztm

     L.tileLayer('http://{s}.tile.openstreetmap.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png', {
       maxZoom: 17,
       attribution: 'Map data © <a href="http://openstreetmap.org">OpenStreetMap</a> contributors'

     var start_at_zoom = 13;

     function onEachFeature(feature, layer) {
       // does this feature have a property named OBJECTID?
       if (feature.properties && feature.properties.OBJECTID) {

     //Adds the GeoJSON layer to the map
     var featureLayer = new L.GeoJSON(
       null, {
         onEachFeature: onEachFeature

     //function to load geojson layer
     function loadGeoJson(data) {
       // console.log(data);

     //when user stops dragging the map, (re)load the wfs layer
     map.on('moveend', load_wfs);

     //function to load the wfs layer
     function load_wfs() {
       if (map.getZoom() > start_at_zoom) {
         var geoJsonUrl = 'http://localhost:8080/geoserver/test/ows';
         var defaultParameters = {
           service: 'WFS',
           version: '1.0.0',
           request: 'getFeature',
           typeName: 'test:PARCEL_LAYER',
           maxFeatures: 10,
           outputFormat: 'text/javascript',
           format_options: 'callback: getJson',
           srsName: 'EPSG:4326'

         var customParams = {
           bbox: map.getBounds().toBBoxString()
         var parameters = L.Util.extend(defaultParameters, customParams);
         console.log(geoJsonUrl + L.Util.getParamString(parameters));

           jsonp: false,
           url: geoJsonUrl + L.Util.getParamString(parameters),
           dataType: 'jsonp',
           jsonpCallback: 'getJson',
           success: loadGeoJson

       } else {
         alert("please zoom in to see the polygons!");

The GeoJSON I get back does not adhere to the WFS BBOX parameter settings, I'm simply getting the top 10 features from the database.

Geoserver log below (may or may not make sense)

I think my confusion lies in where to do the reprojection to EPSG:2193. Is it the leaflet map itself I have to reproject to EPSG:2193, or the WFS bbox call which I have to reproject to EPSG:2193 to get the features, and project the output GeoJSON to Leaflet's default EPSG:3857?
