For 1st time freedom campers this was our 1st 'freedom camping spot' and absolutely pleased this was an option. Got there early avo, very windy so perfect for kite surfers(and there were plenty on the water) so we got to watch that. You have to go all the way to the end to turn your campervan tho. Kids had after school sports activities which was fun to watch(made us miss our granddaughter). Beautiful view of the ocean, clean toilets, very clean park except someone didn't pick up their dog shit which was on the lawn right where the designated area is(as there's only 3 designated areas for self contained vehicles. Gates are locked which we were happy with especially given the fact we're 1st timers. Wake up to lots of people exercising in the morning and cool breeze to offset the hot early morning sun.

3 overnight spots, we had the place to ourselves. Toilets are nice but do get locked in the evening.
Good for a quick stop over.

Situated in the carpark of a sports centre/park on the water. There are toilets which are locked overnight. Only 3 spots, 2 in the actual car park and 1 further down closer to the water. These are all clearly marked. Overall convenient overnight spot

Just a little out of town and next to the sea (tidal inlet). There's a good playground. Fergusson Park is a busy little place with locals, so it's unlikely that you'll get it to yourself. Very pleasant spot.
