Kauri Coast TOP 10 Holiday Park is Northland's premier west coast Holiday Park and is set on two idyllic hectares of parkland, surrounded by native bush with river boundaries on two sides. This is the perfect Northland accommodation base from which to enjoy the magnificent Kauri Coast. 

There are many great ways to spend a day in our piece of paradise. Swim in our swimming holes or play basketball, petanque or table tennis, with free hire on all sporting equipment. There is a well-equipped playground for children of all ages, and a flying fox for those who like a bit of excitement. Stroll around the stunning grounds or learn about our beautiful native setting by following our Nature Trail. Visit the nearby Trounson Kauri Park, take a short drive to the Kai Iwi Lakes or head north to the mighty Waipoua Forest and the Hokianga Harbour. At the end of the day, you can enjoy our fantastic covered outdoor kitchen, BBQ areas or great indoor cooking facilities. At night, listen for the sound of the kiwi. Hire a Self-Guided Kiwi Pack and try your luck finding a kiwi - limited packs available.

Kauri Coast TOP 10 Holiday Park is the ideal weekend getaway, stop-off point on your tour of Northland or relaxing holiday destination. The drive north from Auckland takes 2.5 hours and the town of Dargaville is only a 25min drive away.

Now here’s a humdinger of a holiday park.
Situated on the Kauri Coast in Northland NZ, the park is ideally located for a visit to the kauri forests. A short distance from Trounson Kauri Park (a great 40 minute walk through the forest) and TANE MAHUTA (the Giant Kauri) you couldn’t get better. Staff are excellent the amenities first rate, and the setting peaceful and serene. PS - go see the eels in the stream at the back.

We were very well received in the campsite, which has very good facilities (the playground delighted our son), but above all we were very well guided for the evening meal and especially to go and observe the Kiwis in a park nearby. We were able to see one in its natural habitat and it will remain an unforgettable experience! THANKS!

Fantastic as always. We have stayed here a few times now and have always had a great stay. Such an amazing spot. Amazing hosts. Amazing clean facilities. Close to the lakes and amazing kauri bush walks. It’s like our northland home away from home.
