Awesome free place to stop on the way through. Nice view of the ocean, clean flush toilets, plenty of toilet papar, quiet and away from the main road. Rubbish dump is just up the road cost $1 to use.

Good little spot to ring in the new year. A few locals going crazy with fireworks but there’s not much out here but a strip of a few houses. Plenty of parking. I made the mistake of parking under a Manuka tree and found flower droppings all over my van for days after. No potable water, the bathroom is about 100 meters away, and no trash bins. At the turnoff from the main road there’s a dumpster for recycling and one for trash, but to use the trash one you have to insert four $1 coins. That’s probably why the little trash can in the bathroom was overflowing in fast food wrappers. Great walk out to the three sisters at low tide. Some neighborhood kids went hunting for clams in the mud at low tide and came back with a huge bin, maybe if you know something about that this spot could benefit you
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Appears to be two different areas with room for probably 10-15 campers combined. Right on the estuary. Bathrooms are basic. No cell service. Great access to the three sisters and elephant rock at low tide. Worth a stop just for this, just don’t get stuck out there. 11/4/19
