The glamping tents come furnished with a queen size bed plus single beds if required to accommodate up to two more people, linen, table, chairs, kitchenette, BBQ, cooking utensils, nearby toilet facilities and fresh water supply.

Auckland Council Community Facilities General Manager Rod Sheridan says “the ‘glampsites’ have been carefully selected to offer campers with stunning views and plenty of recreational activities to enjoy, all with a touch of luxury.”  Ōrewa and Martins Bay provide a beachfront experience with all the holiday park amenities and services.

Councillor Penny Hulse, chair of Auckland Council’s Environment and Community Committee, says glamping helps to make camping in Auckland more accessible. “Glamping is a first for Auckland Council and adds to council’s portfolio of more than 100 holiday places across the region,” she says. “It’s great because it takes away the pressure of having to purchase and transport all the equipment needed to go camping. You essentially just need to bring your food and clothing. It’s ideal for first-time campers and people wanting to enjoy some of Auckland’s most beautiful locations.”
