Free holiday park directory now available

November 4, 2013 Association No Comments Email Email

Just in time for summer holiday planning, a new free directory and map of 300 holiday parks around New Zealand is now available.

The Holiday Accommodation Parks Association has just released it 2014 Directory and Map with easy-to-find details of all its member holiday parks.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHoliday parks are located throughout New Zealand in cities, towns and holiday spots. Many are located on reserve land in very special parts of New Zealand, says Association Chief Executive Fergus Brown.

“Holiday parks have come a long way from the old days of offering tent sites and basic facilities. Most parks now offer a wide range of built accommodation from modern apartments, motel units to backpacker style accommodation suitable for school groups and special events,” he says.

This year the publication features those parks which are accredited under the holiday parks cycle hub scheme. These parks offer guests secure covered cycle storage, a cycle cleaning facility, information on local cycling options and access to a cycle technician.

The 2014 publication is distributed through major i-SITE visitor centres, all AA travel centres and is available for arriving passengers at international airports. It can also be picked up from holiday parks and is included with a number of outdoor and fishing publications.

The Directory Map complements the comprehensive and the handy mobile website

“Even in these days of online and mobile technology, there’s still a demand for a quality printed directory which meets the needs of both international and domestic travellers,” Mr Brown says.

The Directory and Map are available at or by email
