WHAT MAKES IT REAL?

LOCATION...

NZ Camping - Queen Charlotte Sound


Right on the waterfront of Queen Charlotte Sound....this Department of Conservation camp ground is a fantastic place to camp.

There are only 33 campsites on the beach, so it really is advisable to book well in advance to secure one of these. However, the inland campsites are also really nice and only a 2 minute stroll to the beach.

If you have a boat, Momorangi Bay is a good camp ground to come to as they have an area to wash and store boats, as well as boat ramp and a jetty.

However, if you want to bring your dog you should stay at Aussie Bay instead, another DOC campground, just a bit further down the road.
