Rawene Holiday Park is tucked away at the back of Rawene town.  The powered sites provide all-weather parking on gravel. The facilities are clean and tidy, and there is a nice view from the pakring area out over the harbour.

 

The park is in a sheltered location and about 15 minutes walk down into Rawene town, where you can enjoy a coffee and light lunch right on the harbour edge, or take some time to walk through the mangroves on the boardwalk.

 

The Glimps is a well-known art gallery in the town, and, for those interested in our history, it's well worth having a look through Clendon House.

 

From the town centre you can also take the ferry across to Kohukohu - it takes about 15 minutes and provides a different view of the harbour, and Kohukohu also has a nice cafe and artist galleries to explore.

 

The ferry is also an option for travelling further north, as it can take cars and motorhomes.

 

Rawene is a small town with it's own character, and well worth exploring. The Rawene Holiday Park is a comfortable base to do that.

 

We were there on an overcast day in early spring, and we were the only visitors at the time. It's not a large campsite, and I would expect it to be quite busy over the holiday season. So book ahead if you're planning to arrive over summer.
