Quite suitable for an overnight stop. Park up on shingle/asphalt., and a bit barren. Public toilets are clean – and closed overnight, so don't depend on using them.

Nice open green space, got locked in the public toilets but managed to climb out. Could do better

Relatively quiet spot, loads of space. Toilets, but they are locked! And they are serious about the vehicle being self contained. We got a $200 fine at 6 in the morning for not having a toilet.

Not a bad option if you arrive in the area late at night after a long drive, and can't be bothered trying to find anything else, but if we had the time and energy we would definitely head north of town a bit to a slightly more scenic site. A large, level gravel car park with some big trees - it served us well in the torrential rain, thunder and lightening storm.

Great spot to spend your first night in a camper if you flew in late to Auckland. Just a large gravel car park next to a park. Toilet locked inside the sporting club overnight which was fine in self contained camper. A little loud with traffic but great for a stop over.
