Certified self-contained vans can park overnight in any council parking area that is not sign-posted as prohibited.
For complete details check wdc.govt.nz/camping. Check for onsite signs on arrival.
You risk a $200 fine for ignoring the rules.
Whangarei District Council also provides four designated freedom camping areas for self-contained vehicles
as well as 18 sites that permit non self-contained camping options.
Parking spaces and van length are limited at these sites and they are very popular, so be sure to arrive early
if you want to park overnight. We recommend you avoid these during the summer season.
The Nook Rd Layby is in a sheltered location down a country road off the road to Whangarei Heads. Self-contained motor caravanners can park overnight.
While it has a nice view over the harbour, you're right alongside the road, and in a reasonably isolated area. There is plenty of room for two vans to park, so it might be a good option if travelling with friends.
You do need to be certified self-contained.
