Kia Ora,

Tauranga Tourist Park is a small, sheltered Holiday Park situated within Tauranga City. We are owner-operators and pride ourselves in ensuring you enjoy a safe, warm, and friendly stay with us.

  We are 5th Generation Kiwis and bought the park from Kerri’s parents in 2016.  We have 3 children (2 of whom are teenagers and one who is quite a bit younger).  Dan comes from a farming background in both horticulture and agriculture and Kerri from Primary Teaching.

We are dog-friendly but have strict rules that need to be adhered to.  These are listed below.

Office hours

Summer and Winter 8.30 am to 8.30 pm
The office is closed daily from 11 am to 1 pm. 

Check-in is from 1 pm.

We are a small park and changed our name from a Holiday Park to a Tourist Park a number of years ago as we do not have a pool, playground or facilities that can entertain or cater to groups or children.  This helps us to keep our park fairly quiet and laid back.

Our park caters mainly for campervans, caravans and mobile homes with power/non-power sites, tent sites, cyclist sites, and standard one-room cabins.

What to expect

Check-in from 1 am
Check out for all guests is by 10 am

A deposit of one night is required to secure your booking. Payment can be made via credit card, cash, or direct debit.

Cancellation/refund policy:

Cancellations will incur a $20 administration fee. The total booking amount may be retained if the cancellation is within ten days of the booked date.
Any extension to a booking is subject to availability. Earlier departure than the reserved date will not result in a refund unless management approves, and are able to relet the booked accommodation.

All cabins will have a hold placed on a registered credit card as security against damages to the Park. This will be an equivalent amount to one-night stay. This must be a credit card, sorry no debit cards. In the event you do not have a credit card management may, at their discretion, charge you one night stay which is refundable upon departure after a satisfactory room inspection by management.

Dolphin trip and Waimarino kayak tours can be booked from our office.

Please note! No swimming pool or playground and we do not cater to groups.
