Said No Campign" and CCTV, couldn't find locals to ask, so I didn't stay. Hamiltons Gap was perfect to stay for the night - 15 Mins drive from there.


Legacy Data

There is an old "No Camping" sign, but Locals confirmed that you are allowed to stay there in a CSC vehicle. Beautiful, quiet spot (apart from planes , but they're quite high when they pass over, so not very loud). You can see the Sky Tower!!, about 20Kms away across the Manukau Harbour. Dogs are allowed off-lead in the Winter.



Camping is not permitted
