    Camp at designated restricted freedom camping areas. If all parks are occupied you will need to find an alternative site or use commercial accommodation. A Permit to camp is required. Click on the website link provided for more information and apply online.

    Freedom camping in the car park at the foot of the hill only. Camping must be in a vehicle only. Camping is prohibited along Makorori Beach.

    Dispose of all waste in facilities provided, or take it with you. No fires, washing lines or semi-permanent structures. Tents only in restricted seasonal camping areas with a permit. Comply with enforcement officers. Park in a legal manner in formed parking areas. Do not restrict access to public areas, footpaths or access ways. Self-contained vehicles must clearly display NZS5465:2001 certification. No person may freedom camp for more than 3 nights within 1 kilometre of an area where you have previously freedom camped within the last 4 weeks.

    Camping is only permitted for those who are fully vaccinated and children under the age of 12 years and 3 months. Those who can’t show proof of vaccination will be asked to move on. This decision will be reviewed regularly as our local ‘traffic light’ status changes. Please be advised our camping compliance officer may request to view your vaccine pass. We welcome responsible campers to the Gisborne Tairāwhiti district and encourage camping at the restricted areas defined in our bylaw. We also encourage the use of commercial and DoC campgrounds.

    Please be familiar with our Freedom Camping Bylaw 2021 and the 'Kiwi' saying "leave only footprints".
