Excellent, convenient place to stay close to Wellington city centre. Can stay for up to 4 nights in a Month. Plenty of spaces available but it is a popular spot. Toilets are very clean. Can walk 3 mins to the number 2 bus stop which will take you into Cuba street. Surprisingly quiet given that it is near a busy road. Would definitely stay again.

Awesome spot, heaps of parks but very busy. Toilet lights are really bright and don't turn off at any point of the night. Mixture of vans, campers and busses parked here.
Great place to stop if you’re catching the ferry.
Very clean toilets available. The carpark for campers is to the right as you enter. It filled up quickly but there were still a few spots left by the end of night.
We did find it difficult to sleep because traffic runs late in Wellington of course, but quietens after 11pm.
Great access to bus stops, there’s the #24 route heading right into town as the bus stop is just across the road. We caught a bus into town to Courtenay Place for $4 each cash and walked to Cuba St and the Waterfront for drinks.
Good coffee almost everywhere in Wellington. Home of Havana and many other delightful roasters. Go for Raglan Roast if you’re up for the devil’s tar. But hey I’m biased.
Beautiful location right by the ferry and airport. Perfect to stay in Wellington for a few nights. Clean toilets and dump station.
Clean public toilets, close to town, nice view of the marina, plenty of parking. Fair bit of road noise.
Staying here for the recent Lv 4 and 3 lockdown. Facilities have been open and the council checking every day. Not currently enforcing the 4 day limit but it will start again come Lv2.
Heaps of space (although I visited in the middle of winter). A little exposed to the wind, toilets were clean and well-lit. Reasonably quiet during the evening. Easy drive to the ferry in the morning.
Lots of parks. 5 from from airport and $10 uber into city
A great car park area just 15 mins to the ferry. Excellent toilets. Dump station and water just across the carpark. Well used and fills up quickly . Not far from the central city, we biked around . Always a few that are not really approved freedom campers that spoil it for others unfortunately.
It's free camping in central Wellington so can't really complain but I wouldn't go there again unless I needed to park a van somewhere and go into central Wellington, or was waiting for the ferry. We were there mid week in Feb and the car park was completely full, the only space we could fit in was pretty tight (we had a mercedes sprinter). It's just a car park so it's not like you can really sit or cook outside the van anywhere (our van had a bbq/table on the side outside but the space was so tight it was pretty impossible to use it). There were only 2 toilets so there was usually a queue for them since it was so busy. Dump station and fresh water available for vans. If you're just looking for somewhere to park up that's free and close to the city then it's fine, although there are other camp grounds a bit further out which we thought were way nicer.
Only stayed overnight before I caught the ferry in the morning but really good. There were nice clean toilets and heaps of space!
Really big space for freedom campers and reasonably close to the CBD (about $10 return to Uber, there's also a bus stop nearby). We were here in Nov and the car park was about 75% full; it would pay to get here early in the busy season. New looking toilets were clean and well maintained.
Fabulous spot. Am here in the middle of winter, plenty of room, clean toilets, bathed in sunshine, watching yachts race on Wellington Harbour. It doesn’t get much better than this.
