Experience glamping with your family in Auckland Council's canvas bell tents
Have you always wanted to go glamping with your family in Auckland but couldn’t find a glampsite that has tents large enough for your family or that is affordable? The good news is Auckland Council has introduced furnished canvas bell tents at the Ōrewa Beach Top 10 Holiday Park, Martins Bay Holiday Park and Wenderholm Regional Park for families wanting a hassle-free camping experience with comfort in amazing locations.
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.”
