Taumarunui Holiday Park

Under new ownership:

Welcome to our Park!  We are a small and friendly Park in the centre of Aotearoa (New Zealand). Located right beside the Whanganui River and bordered by 23ha of primary bush which has a great stand of matai.  We offer powered and non-powered sites set amongst plenty of mature trees for shade and shelter, standard cabins that are all less than 25m from the shared toilets, showers and kitchen and our most popular accommodation, our self-contained Kiwi Cottage.

We can provide accommodation for individuals, families, groups and schools. By summer we will be offering canoe trips, bike hire and our shuttle service will be up by July! If you need a ride from your trail…give us a call.


You really can do it ALL from here – located in the heart of the spectacular Central Plateau, Taumarunui Holiday Park is the ideal base for all the many activities this largely untamed wilderness offers – see our Top 10 picks.

Start/end point of the renowned Forgotten World Highway; ride the rails with Forgotten World Adventures Rail Carts; canoe/kayak the mighty Whanganui River; walk the must-do Tongariro Crossing and lots of other great walks;  fish in some of the world’s best freshwater fishing spots;  cycle through the ancient forests of the Timber Trail;  mountain and motor biking on the 42nd traverse;  only 40mins from Tongariro National Park and the Whakapapa Snowfield; and much, much more ……

We are in the centre of an outdoor, all-seasons adventure playground!

And we’re pet friendly.  We know it’s hard to leave your family pets behind – which is why we don’t mind if you bring them with you! Please click here though for things you should consider before bringing your pet with you.
