Holiday in Hawkes Bay Help
Posted December 3rd, 2012 - 11:11 pm by from Taupiri, New Zealand (Permalink)
Hey Guys!! This is my first summer back in New Zealand since being overseas for 5 years and i was wondering if i could have some help planning a holiday!!!
I have time off from the 20th Dec till 4th Jan and will be travelling with my partner :)
We live with flatmates and are always hosting CSers or family so we really want a private secluded QUIET holiday away hehe :)
We are from Hamilton so obviously would need ideas in North island preferably not longer than 5hr drive :)
Requirements:
Sun, Maybe beach or river, Camping spot or a batch we can rent, Privacy :) hehe
We could split the time up between 2 or 3 spots aswell.
So....
Does anyone know a secret Camping spot we could go??
Does anyone have a batch or house we could rent for a couple of days??
Any ideas!

I checked out DOC and found these 2 campsites:

Anyone been to them???

Thanks Sheree
