Awana Campground - Department of Conservation


Located up the estuary from Awana Beach, Awana Campground is a beautiful sunny spot with lots of room for outdoor games over Summer. The beach is a popular surf break on the island, but be careful swimming in the powerful waves and rips as there are no lifeguards at any of our beaches.

In the height of summer it is advisable to bring a marquee or some form of awning as there are minimal trees for shade and it can get very hot!

Pateke (Brown Teal), Torea (Oyster Catchers) and Tuturiwhatu (New Zealand Dotterel) nest along the banks of the estuary and sand dunes, so please be careful walking down to the beach.

Fires are not permitted at any time.
Dogs are not permitted at any DoC campgrounds.

For more information and reserving a site, please see the Department of Conservation website below.

Adult (18+ years): $15 per night, Child (5 - 17 years): $7.50 per night, Infant (0 - 4 years): free
