If you're looking to explore the many wonders of Canterbury, a Kiwi Holiday Park is the perfect place to set up camp. With five holiday parks in and around Christchurch and the greater Canterbury region, you're never far from enjoying the superior facilities and unbeatable service of a Kiwi Holiday Park.

Amber Park Motel & Caravan Park

Amber Park is located only a short distance from Cathedral Square, the central hub of Christchurch. With accommodation spread across acres of lush, manicured grounds, this is the ideal place to discover why Christchurch is called 'The Garden City'. The helpful staff will be happy to book any tour of the region at your request, and take pride in maintaining the amenities. This way you'll always have a clean, relaxing place to put your feet up after returning from a full day of exploring the region.

All Seasons Holiday Park

Providing purpose built family accommodation in comfortable stand-alone units, All Seasons Holiday Park is nestled amongst many of Christchurch's best attractions. The beautiful Sumner beaches, state of the art AMI rugby stadium, chic shopping malls, and sailing facilities are but a few of the nearby sights worth a visit. Or you could always just relax by the onsite pool and enjoy the pristine surroundings.

Spencer Beach Holiday Park

Spencer Beach is one of Christchurch's most popular beaches, and for good reason! The tranquil white sand setting is complemented by a number of leisurely bushwalks and mountain biking tracks to be found in the adjacent Bottle Lake Plantation. This holiday park is only a short walk from the main beach, and contains a sizeable adventure playground which will keep the kids entertained for hours while the adults take in a bit of the rest and relaxation that Spencer Beach is famous for.

Pines Holiday Park

Hanmer Springs is located north of Christchurch, and boasts world class thermal springs that tourists flock to each and every year. Pines Holiday Park is just a gentle stroll away from Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools, where even the most travel weary soul can unwind in pure comfort.

Coronation Holiday Park & Motel

Coronation is situated south of Christchurch, in the town of Ashburton, which lies nestled amongst some of Canterbury’s most striking scenery. Plush mountains, fertile rivers, and the open ocean make this a natural hub of fishing, rafting, jet boating and hot-air ballooning, to name just a few activities. The secluded grounds and friendly hospitality of this holiday park are what makes it a home away from home for many tourists.

Whether you're looking for action, adventure, or just to stop and smell the roses, Canterbury offers the best of all worlds. To find out more about excellent, yet affordable Canterbury accommodation, visit the Kiwi Holiday Parks website.
