A large car park in the middle of wellington. It is busy in the day but clears at night time and there is a toilet block on the other side of the park that’s next too it should you wish to use them. We originally wanted to stay at the free camping sites (all full) but found this to be a much better option in the end as it’s right in the centre of Wellington right next to Te Pata museum, harbour and central district with food and shopping. So glad we stayed here as you would need to drive in and pay for parking anyway. It’s $14 for 12 hours or $30 for 24hrs.

It's a car park. Right in the centre of Wellington, busy with shoppers during the day, but empties out in the evening. Only $14 for 12 hours if you are waiting for an early ferry.

Essentially just an open air car park. Excellent location to walk to a whole lot of activities in Wellington, including right next to Te Papa museum. No designated motorhome spots so had to stick out of one of the spots. $30 for 24 hours. Public toilet 5 minutes walk across the park.
This was the oddest experience in our north island adventure - staying in a car park with traffic going by! Would probably stay here again given the location.
Did not see any security and the payments were done via machine.
