Was ok for one night. Right next to a street and a skate park so it can get noisy. Flush toilets close by. We then went to i-Site to have a shower there for 2$ pp.

Not really nice. Just a street parking next to a busy street with a lot of traffic.

Stayed in August. 2 girls felt a little unsafe/dodgy area arriving late at night (10pm). Only camper around staying on street parking basically, unclear where applied as applicable places to stay.
Toilets only open 8am - 5pm but cleaned daily very clean.
I-site 2 minute drive away amazing facilities $2 private shower for 20 minutes hot water open from 9am. Supermarkets (countdown etc) all close by!
However only free place to stay round there so thanks for providing the option!

It is a carpark next to a big park with very clean public toilets with sink, which are open all night, next to a skate park (on Saturday morning there were basically little kids riding, not teenagers). There are a lot of places and it is very close to what seems the downtown, Rugby Museum, Apprentice Brewery and some big supermarkets like Pak n Save or Countdown. It can be a little noisy but you have a lot of space to move to and avoid it.
