No bathrooms or water, but not a far walk through town to find a bathroom. The camping is in the row of parking spots Northeast of the iSite along Moutoa Quay facing the river. The park was clean and easy close walks to bars and bakeries in town. Late at night on a Friday there seemed to be locals playing loud music and doing drugs but they went away later in the night.

The I-site - officials told us to use all the parking slots at the waterfront during the night. The two yellow-marked Campervan-slots are only for 60min. day-parking.
Nice location near CBD and some bars/restaurants. No more infrastructure at all.

No facilities, just 2 dedicated Campervan parks. Nice spot. Be aware that there is a market in this car park on Saturday morning and you will be asked to leave at 5:30am, so not recommended for a Friday night stay.
