Parking between the signs
The Lee St Carpark in Whitianga is across the road from the cinema, and is available to certified self-contained motor caravanners for parking overnight.
We pulled into the carpark on a Monday at around mid-morning. There was plenty of room and no obvious freedom camping signs, so we just parked along with the other cars. It was only when walking around to take some pictures that I discovered the signs that tell you where you can freedom camp.
Like all the other freedom camping parking bays set up by the Thames-Coromandel District Council, there were just four, and really too narrow to park 3 vans next to each other. And the usual warning of a $200 fine if you were to park anywhere else in the carpark.
This is a good location if you want to catch a movie as there is a cinema complex across the road.
