Best stop on the peninsula. Access road mostly unsealed, okay for all. $18pp for site, showers and animal park. Complete steal. Only downside is park isn't maintained like a government zoo but can't imagine that possible with the open fowl greetings, and poo! Take gumboots, it's no joke. Highlights were feeding literal handfuls of Lorikeets, 4ft eel, cuddly bunnies, chatty birds and farm staples. Exotic pheasants go under the radar, but do visit them. No Wifi

Mill Creek Bird & campervan park is a such unique site that I cannot see anywhere else. Birds and farm animals and especially these two lovely parrots saying hello and goodbye. The site has clean facilities, unlimited hot water and is very cheap.

This birdpark and campground is really worth its price. We had a cabin with our 2 kids for 40 dollars. Tent is only $4nzd cheaper. Good entertainment for the kids. Facilities are really clean. Only minus: Minigolf and playground are quite old and rundown.

A nice change on a holiday full of beaches and crowds, this is five minutes off the main road into the hills on an unpaved but smooth road. Well set out campsite and our 2 year old loved all the animals and the playground. Peacocks, duck and geese ate with us at every meal. This is an awesome off the track experience. Be aware that the large number of birds (it is a bird park) means any flat surface is likely to have its share of poop. No different to a day at the lake. If you let this put you off you'll be missing out on a great experience. Kitchen and facilities more than adequate. Unmetered hot showers worth it all by themselves.

Great place with a clean hot shower, kitchen, dump site, laundry (4NZD) and toilets. The animals kept our kids busy all the time ;) 18NZD per adult including the animals, but they offer discounts.

A bit more expensive compared to DOC campsites ($15) but worth it. Nice and quiet place (except the sounds of the birds), hot showers, kitchen with everything you need.
