Family Parks NZ offer great holidays and a special free weekend on March 23-24 2007

Sarah Fisher - 03/11/06

Our love affair with caravan and camping holidays is as strong as ever with over 6 million* overnight stays in caravan parks or commercial camping grounds from September 2005 to August 2006. You would have to agree that gazing up at the stars at night is so much more appealing than looking up at the ceiling of your hotel room!

Guy Camp

What is it about the humble outdoor holiday that has kiwis hitting the road in droves? Family Parks New Zealand share their secrets on why getting back to nature is on many of our holiday priority lists.

Family time
Quality caravan parks have loads of facilities including swimming pools, tennis courts, games rooms, barbecues, playgrounds and mini supermarkets. There are also plenty of activities for the kids to get involved in, with scores of like-minded families around to keep your tribe amused, allowing you to sit back, relax and enjoy your holiday.

Pet friendly
Dread leaving Fido in a kennel? Fair enough, he deserves a holiday too! Some caravan parks will allow you to take your much loved pooch with you. Family Parks NZ is now the most pet friendly caravan park chain in New Zealand, with 18 of its 28 caravan parks allowing you to bring your pet with you.

Penny pinching
A caravanning and camping holiday is a very affordable alternative to the high cost of hotel rooms. Travel during shoulder or low season and receive great savings - and a great tip for senior travellers is that many parks will offer you further discounts, allowing you to stay even longer!

Wide range of choices
Whether you are after a beach break or a bit of adventure there are fun-filled destinations that everyone will enjoy. You have the freedom to choose your style of accommodation from luxury self contained cabins for romantic rendezvous, powered sites for tourist caravans to tent sites for camping enthusiasts.

No worries
There are no flights to catch, no security concerns or long lines for lost luggage. And enjoy the comfort of your own car onsite, keeping you mobile to see all the sites and escape on scenic drives.

Bare essentials
Never pay excess baggage charges again! Pack up the boogie boards, surf boards, fishing rods, bicycles and those must-have gadgets and never worry again about having to carry it all up three flights of stairs to your hotel room.

And don’t forget to make the most of Go Camp 07!
