Taranaki: welcoming motorhomes

The South Taranaki towns of Hawera and Opunake have gained official Motorhome Friendly status with the New Zealand Motor Caravan Association, joining Stratford to offer Motorhome Friendly destinations right around the Mountain, while NZMCA parks in Hawera and New Plymouth offer further facilities for self-contained motorhomes. 
 
The move means there’s more infrastructure to support those who are exploring New Zealand in self-contained campers, and NZMCA members can expect a warm welcome.
 
The Motorhome Friendly status is supported by the New Zealand Motor Caravan Association to share the benefits of motorhome tourism, without adding extra strain to local facilities. 
 
Have a look around the rest of this site to see what Taranaki has to offer, and make sure you stop and explore the region’s three official Motorhome Friendly towns!
