Note camping here is not legal but people do anyway. Please keep it clean, do not litter and be considerate of the people who are legally parking their cars here because we don't want the no camping rules to be enforced. Abuse of freedom camping spots is the reason why they are being cracked down on and there are less and less of them. Pick up others rubbish if you see it.



Stayed here for one night like 12 other Vans. As mentioned before, no toilets or bins -> self contained only. Just keep in mind that this spot is in the next to a busy street so it will not always be quite.

Just stayed here one night last night, as did perhaps 12 others in campervans, big rigs, caravan, all sorts, all must be self-contained on this side though. No toilets, no bins, just nice flat spots. Easy 10 minute walk to Countdown and surprisingly quiet at night! Thanks Whangārei! Keep it clean! Keep it free! If you're touring find us on Instagram @saltyskin Always good to connect!
