Certified self-contained vans can park overnight in any council parking area that is not sign-posted as prohibited.
For complete details check 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.

Rest area parking


There are two rest areas at McLeod Bay alongside the harbour, where certified self-contained motor caravanners can freedom camp.


This one is the smaller of the two, and is close to the road. 

View over the harbour at low tide.
