Akaroa TOP 10 Holiday Park

Classic Park

Akaroa TOP 10 Holiday Park is located on Bank's Peninsula, in the beautiful South Island, and is only 85km from Christchurch and an international airport.

Akaroa, nestled in the crater of an extinct volcano in Canterbury's Banks Peninsula, is unique in being the only attempted French settlement in New Zealand, and it still retains an authentic French atmosphere. Unsurpassed location and views, with a comprehensive range of holiday park facilities and accommodation types.

There are stunning views of the harbour from the park units and cabins, and most of the campervan, caravan and tent sites. There is a full range of Holiday Park facilities including a swimming pool.

Situated within easy walking distance of the French inspired village and away from traffic makes Akaroa TOP 10 Holiday Park the perfect place for a quiet affordable getaway.

10% off 'Coast up Close' Wildlife Adventures

Banks Peninsula is one of the few places you can see one of the smallest marine dolphins in the world. They are less than 1.5 meters in length and can live up to 20 years. Females only have 4-5 calves in a lifetime. Calving usually happens between November and February. The NZ fur seal dives deeper (200 meters) and longer (10 minutes) than any other fur seal. Pups are born in November to January. Back in the 1800's they were hunted to the brink of extinction. Since their protection in 1978, their numbers seem to be recovering. Enjoy Little Blue Penguins (Eudyptula minor albosignata) The white flippered variety.The best place to see these delightful, tiny penguins is during the day, out on the water where they are fishing. At only 25 cm tall, they are the world's smallest penguin. Discover many different Seabirds Terns, gannets, albatross, petrels, shearwaters and shags--they will amaze you with their speed and beauty. We can take you close to their nesting sites and watch them fishing.
