Awesome place to freedom camp. There's a sign on a power pole once you get into the paddock, so that you know you're in the right place. No facilities available. There was only us and another van when we went, with plenty of space. Good place to stay before or after visiting the salmon farm. I think they allow 2 nights.

Very confusing to find where to actually stop overnight as the signs are very vague and still not sure if we stayed in the right place but parked in a field on the left just before the salmon farm car park and was a beautiful backdrop to spend the night including the deer in the neighboring field
Great place to stay for self contained campers, we were the only ones there after spending the afternoon Salmon fishing. Very quiet. Comet the friendly deer enjoyed some nice fresh grass too.
Perfect freedom camping spot! We spent the afternoon catching our own salmon and visiting the other animals around. (There is a friendly deer opposite the farm, too) The salmon was the best we ever are! We were the only ones staying there that night and no single car passed the street next to the grassy area at night. You could only hear the birds singing. Bring repellent for the sandflies, no toilet accessible at night.
Anatoki Salmon farm allows visitors to park over their property for up to two nights. No signs, but clearly stated on their website. Great location, with farm animals being walked past our site!
