New Zealand

Islands of mystery and adventure.

Explore a land of rich culture and majestic beauty.

New Zealand has it all: spectacular scenery, adrenaline-inducing adventure, unique wildlife and delicious food and wine!

Whatever your travel style, you’ll find a Tasman Holiday Park to suit in the most popular destinations across the North and South Islands.

From your base in Waihi, explore the Coromandel Peninsula and Bay of Plenty. Meander down the coast, through picturesque country towns and the millionaire beachside suburbs to the tranquillity of Papamoa Beach with its endless sandy shoreline.

Experience the best of Maori culture and hospitality in Rotorua. Let off steam on a mountain bike trail, test your courage on the downhill luge and soak away your aches and pains in a mineral pool.

At Ohiwa Beach you can surf, swim or fish, walk in the coastal bush reserve or hire a kayak or paddleboard and explore the tranquil harbour.

Picton is your gateway to the Marlborough Sounds for cruises, kayaking and wildlife tours while Christchurch is a perfect base for exploring the Canterbury High Country or a day trip to the Mt Hutt ski fields.

From Te Anau, you’re well-placed to experience the grandeur of Milford Sound.

North Island

The aptly named Bay of Plenty is all about beaches. Water lovers are spoilt for choice with dozens of beaches and estuaries for swimming, surfing, snorkelling, kayaking, paddleboarding and fishing.

Located between the Coromandel Peninsula and Tauranga, the old gold mining town of Waihi also offers access to rugged forests, beautiful river walks, great cycling trails and swimming spots set in bush-clad hills.

Papamoa’s endless sandy beach is made for swimming and beachcombing. Spend some energy on climbing to the top of the Papamoa Hills Regional Park, and be rewarded with extensive views over the bay to White Island, then chill out with the locals and enjoy a cold beer and fresh seafood at the friendly pubs and cafes.

Rotorua has deservedly been on the international tourist map for over 150 years with its spectacular thermal activity and warm Maori hospitality. These days it’s equally well known for adventure tourism and a range of bike trails to suit everyone from beginners to champions.

Stay and play at our well-appointed holiday parks in New Zealand!

South Island

Picton is the gateway to the Marlborough Sounds, 1,000km of coastline and inlets made for cruising, swimming, kayaking and fishing. Visit an island bird sanctuary, swim with dolphins, watch for whales, get up close to penguins, seals and dolphins, walk the Queen Charlotte Track or hire a bike and take your pick of great rides.

Located between Queenstown’s ski fields and the magnificent Milford Sound, Te Anau is set in one of the most spectacular natural playgrounds you will ever see, with views of snow-capped mountain peaks, cascading waterfalls and massive glaciers. Every day is a new adventure!

From Christchurch, it’s an easy day trip to the Canterbury High Country and Mt Hutt ski field, but make sure to leave time to explore this bustling city with its galleries, museums, restaurants and famous botanical garden.

New Zealand escape.

Is there a better feeling than setting off on a road trip?

From the central North Island to the southern tip of the South Island prepare yourself for jaw-dropping scenery, and stay and explore in style at one of our top holiday parks.

Let’s start off nice and easy at Waihi as you cruise down the coast through avocado and kiwifruit farms, quaint country towns and the harbour city of Tauranga.

Papamoa Beach, a laid-back coastal settlement with the Pacific on your doorstep, makes a good stop-off point. Head inland to Rotorua, where you can soak in a mineral pool and soak up a warm Maori welcome, complete with a Maori hangi (feast) and bone-chilling haka (war dance).

Follow Highway 30 for a spectacular drive through the lake country to the Eastern Bay of Plenty and Ohiwa Beach, gateway to the East Cape of New Zealand.

From Wellington, the inter-island car ferry cruises into Picton through a scenic wonderland of bays, islands and inlets.

Travelling down the east coast to Christchurch, you’ll pass through the Canterbury Plains, home to sheep, cattle, deer, vineyards and olive groves.

Take the road to Queenstown via Lake Tekapo and its azure waters, before turning south to Te Anau. Take your time and stop at the lookouts for breath-taking views of the Remarkables mountain range, Lake Wakatipu and the Fiordland mountains.
