Camp overnight at the Wairere Boulders

Our peaceful campsite offers visitors the opportunity to stay overnight, and enjoy the nature reserve as the nocturnal creatures wake up. In this corner of New Zealand we have some of the clearest night skies in the world, completely unaffected by light pollution. 

Lay down on the grass, stare up to the sky and listen to the moreporks calling to each other, what better way could there be to relax and get back to nature?
