Waikuku Beach Holiday Park - Location

We are located just 30 minutes from Christchurch Airport and most campervan depots.

Turn off SH 1 at Waikuku, just north of Woodend and drive 3km to the end of the road. You can fish off the beach or fish for trout or whitebait in season at the Ashley River located just 500 metres north of the park. The mouth of the Ashley offers a wide estuary and more adventures for everyone. There are 5 golf courses within a 20-minute drive and the Pegasus Golf Course is only 3km away, home of the NZ Ladies' Golf Open. There are a number of fine restaurants within a 5 to 10-minute drive.

Waikuku Beach Activities and Events

Waikuku Beach Holiday Park is situated on a large grassed site just 100 metres from a safe swimming and surf beach that is patrolled by surf lifesavers throughout the summer. The holiday park is separated from the beach by a forest belt that offers numerous fun trails where the kids can build forts and invent their own play. There is a children's playground on site and the domain next door has a flying fox, tennis court, basketball half court and skateboard area. There is a public playground and paddling pool as well. We have a small shop on site stocked with groceries, lollies, ice creams and soft drinks. There are 5 golf courses within a 20-minute drive and the Pegasus Golf Course is only 3km away.
