Free camping at night, but dont expect a good nights sleep as its right next to the train station. Stayed on a Monday night, and trains were coming through every couple hours. Apart from that great location to shops and easy access.

Still available. Kitchen sink has been removed. Still got a rubbish bin and real toilets are only a short walk away. $7 day for parking now. Great location for checking out the city.



Stayed here a couple of nights. Great access for the city. You can camp in any of the spots except the leased ones. Good facilities including a sink. You can park there all day for 6 dollerydoos too. It's free after 6pm obviously. Dunedin is great fun. Easy squeezy my geezy.
