From mid December until mid February each year a ‘permit application fee' applies. For the rest of the year permits must be obtained from Council for any camping at Pourerere Beach but no charge will apply.

Casual campers must notify the Council's Bylaw Officer of their name, address and contact phone number, their intended camping area and length of stay. Contact on +64 6 857 8060 for more information.

Length of stay is not to exceed 3 days, please leave the site clean and tidy. Camp sites must be set up in such a way as to not interfere with or damage trees, other vegetation such as sand dune plants, or disturb nesting birds in the dunes.

Other than all this info - have a good one!!!

An exposed site at the south end of Pourerere that will provide a cooling breeze on a summers night or an intolerable experience in a southerly wind. Rather muddy and rough, there are no flat spots in this “out of sight out of mind” freedom camping spot. However, on a nice evening you will enjoy a fantastic sunset. No privacy, no shelter, 1km from toilets and 500m from any beach access. Two stars because you can camp for 3 nights.
