Ambury Regional Park is managed by the Auckland Council, and provides real farm experience, and the council campsite.

 

For motor caravanners, especially those travelling with children, this is one of Auckland's hidden treasures! The farm experienc is natural and very well maintained. You can just wander around and explore whatever you are interested in.

 

Or you can just stop for a picnic in a very pleasant environment, with plenty of room for parking.

 

The campsite is also spacious and provide mostly on grass parking, with some gravel all-weather sites. There is no power, but there are toilets, and some basic washnig up facilities.

 

Outside of the farm you can explore the Watercare Coastal Walkway, which you can access from within the camp grounds.

 

The camp fees are $12 per adult per night, and you can make a booking and pay by phoning 09 301 0101. You will then be given the current code for opening the gate.

This is indeed a little treasure with the camping area tucked away in a tranquil spot near the coast and surrounded by farm animals. Lots of great walking tracks from here. This time we took our bikes and cycled from the waterfront, [just outside the main gates], on a shared concrete path to the Old Mangere Bridge, across this, and then right off the end of the bridge to another wide shared concrete path all the way along the waterfront to Southdown Reserve.
