Camping NZ NEW

Welcome to New Zealand's most comprehensive database of freely available camping information. This is the only travel map of its kind in NZ.



Spencer Park is an outstanding recreational facility, and a great place for a family day trip.

Spencer Park has it all. Sheltered picnic areas, wetland walks, animal area, children’s play ground, paddling pool, bird lookout platforms, and many short and long walks.

Explore the sand dune coast on horseback, or cycle the mountain bike trails of Bottle Lake Forest.

The variety of walks at Spencer Park are impressive, with short easy tracks around the Park, and longer tracks connecting to Bottle Lake Forest and the Southern Pegasus Bay Track

A lovely stretch of coastline/countryside with many outdoor activities. We did the Adrenaline Forest zip lining activity which was a great way to spend a few hours. And a nice walk along the reserve. Worth visiting to mill away a few hours.

Went there and had a great walk through the pine forest and a wonderful beach to walk along too. Lifesavers on the beach and people walking their dogs, as well as horseriders enjoying the beach. Large picnic area available too.
