Amber Kiwi Holiday Park This small inner city holiday park is just 4km from Cathedral Square. It sits on landscaped grounds, making it a peaceful setting for a holiday with the family.

Waikuku Beach Holiday Park (pictured) Waikuku Beach Holiday Park sits only 100 metres from a surf and swim beach, which is patrolled by lifeguards during summer. There’s also a forest separating the holiday park from the beach, with several walking trails. Not to mention the flying fox, basketball court and golf course nearby, offering plenty of entertainment for children.

Rakaia River Holiday Park Less than an hour south west of Christchurch is Rakaia River Holiday Park, set amongst the trees and surrounded by tranquil walking trails. Fishermen also say it’s one of the best places to camp in New Zealand. It’s located right next to the Rakaia River, which is said to be one of the country’s best salmon fishing rivers.

North South Holiday Park Located just minutes from Christchurch International Airport is this relaxing, tree-lined holiday retreat. Its location makes for a wonderful base from which to explore the CBD and surrounding attractions. With powered sites available and a range of facilities, such as a swimming pool and outside lounge, it’s a great place to relax after a busy day of exploring the area.

Alpine Pacific Holiday Park Drive two hours north of Christchurch and you’ll discover nature at its finest in Kaikoura. There are coastal walks, marine life encounters, with snow capped peaks in the distance. Alpine Pacific Holiday Park's tranquil setting also makes it the perfect place to base the family as you explore this pristine area.
