Wairere Boulders Campground


5 from 1 users


Our peaceful campsite offers visitors the opportunity to stay overnight, and enjoy the nature reserve as the nocturnal creatures wake up. In this corner of New Zealand we have some of the clearest night skies in the world, completely unaffected by light pollution. In keeping with our environmentally sustainable ethos, we are an ecofriendly, low impact campsite. We have toilets available, but we do not provide showers. There is drinking water available in the toilet block and non-potable water at the boot cleaning station. Booking is not usually necessary, but if you want to make a reservation give us a call or email. Cyclists can be picked up or dropped off, from the Horeke Tavern for no extra charge, just give us a call. Dogs are permitted in the campground as long as they are kept under control at all times and all dog waste is removed. They are not permitted in the nature reserve.

Not dog friendly at all. You might be all good with a little chihuahua but sadly for my partner and I who own a well behaved placid Rotweiller we were told we could not stay. Very very disappointed. We arrived around 445pm and had driven most of the day so we had to carry on and search for somewhere else to stay.



I spent very memorable moments at Wairere Boulders Campground! Graham is very friendly and welcoming. The property is kept with love and passion, and during the walkway there are many things to discover! Graham and his family are really creative and show their love for the land in a magnificent way! Its absolutely a place to visit, with stunning giant boulders all along the stream and many pathways with beautiful nature. Its also possible to kayak in the morning along the river thru the forest and mangroves and finally reach the harbour. The perfect place of history and beautyness where to make a stop along the way, very close to waipua forest where you can go visot the giant kauri tree Tane
