BOOKING INFORMATION: • Listed tariffs, unless otherwise stated, are for two persons for one night, include GST, and are in New Zealand dollars. Neither the AA nor the publishers set or dictate tariffs, and consequently they cannot take any responsibility for them. • Check with the holiday park when booking to confirm the tariff and number of people it covers, any facilities required, any deposit required, their cancellation policy and whether a minimum booking period or surcharge applies. • Caravans must bear current Electric Warrants of Fitness, or Certificates of Compliance not more than four years old. • The International Symbol of Access (ISO 7000) is displayed by a number of properties in this guide to indicate that they have facilities accessible to people in wheelchairs and those with special access needs. Check your specific needs with your hosts when booking.

www.aatraveller.co.nz HOW TO FREEDOM-CAMP RESPONSIBLY: If you want to try freedom camping, there are some important things to be aware of. Freedom camping means staying overnight on public land without the usual facilities of most campsites. This means you must only camp in a selfcontained vehicle, where you can carry out what you carry in, and leave no trace.

Freedom camping is managed very carefully in New Zealand. You can only stay on approved and designated sites. Check where they are at local i-SITES or DOC offices, or on the council websites. You may be fined if you camp in a nondesignated area. The advantages of staying at a holiday park or campground over freedom camping include better safety and security for you and your belongings, access to water, toilet facilities, rubbish disposal, safe barbecuing areas, dump stations and internet access.
