Pitch a tent, book a cabin or park your campervan

Scattered all over the Hutt Valley you will find many family friendly campsites! Some of our personal favourites include Wellington Top 10 Holiday Park, Wellington's Kiwi Holiday Park and Kaitoke Regional Park.

Camp on an island

East by West ferries will take you to Matiu Somes Island for new take on a camping getaway. In the middle of Wellington Harbour, set up your gear in a sheep paddock surrounded by historical buildings with campsite facilities in the building that once was a maximum security quarantine station. Get plenty of rest before you go - you'll want to do some late night walks to see the islands nocturnal wildlife (little penguins, weta and tuatara)
