Couldn't find the exact spot, as there are no roads leading to the spot on the Rankers app map, but ended up parking on a small gravel road nearby with sheep fields on both sides of the campervan. Super pretty landscape, awesome nighttime star view, and best of all: super quiet and no cars coming by during the entire night. No toilets or any facilities though.

***UPDATE FROM TIMARU DISTRICT COUNCIL**
This campsite will be closed from mid April to allow forestry harvesting operations. It will reopen later in the Spring to allow time for ground repairs / oversowing etc to take place.
