Native Parks : Motorhome Havens

5th edition, www.nativeparks.co.nz

Discover NZ, meet real Kiwis, slash your trip costs. Savvy travellers who want to meet the locals and save money while holidaying in New Zealand will benefit from a new network of Kiwi hosts.

Native Parks brings together a list of rural properties that allow tourists to park their motor-homes or campervans overnight at their place at no cost. Native Parks properties are as diverse in culture and enterprise as the scenery that surrounds them, ranging from quirky, non-traditional sites at ceramics studios and wineries, to more conventional small farms.

About 80 ‘native parks’ have joined the network so far and, for the cost of a membership (NZ$70), travellers gain access to any of the sites listed in the guidebook.
