Welcome to Hydrabad Holiday Park and Waitarere Beach Motor Camp

There are two camps at Waitarere Beach, the Hydrabad Holiday Park on Forest Road and the Waitarere Beach Motor Camp on Park Avenue.

Hydrabad Holiday Park

Named after the shipwreck on our beach (the Hydrabad was driven ashore during high seas in 1878 and is still visible today), the Hydrabad Holiday Park is a great place to bring the family for a relaxing holiday. We have a great play area with:

  • A swimming pool
  • 3 trampolines
  • Swings
  • Slide
  • A camp hall

Turn off SH 1, between Levin and Foxton. The Hydrabad Holiday Park is a quiet family park at the popular Waitarere Beach.

Waitarere Beach Motor Camp

Small in size but not in comfort, this spic-and-span terraced camp is adjacent to the wide sweep of Waitarere Beach. It has sites with power, plus a range of tent sites. The kitchen has plenty of facilities (including microwave) and a dining area, with an adjoining TV room. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, with homely touches. All the amenities are of a good standard with two ablutions blocks. An interesting children's playground is set on the hill above the camp with great views out to sea. Shopping is just around the corner and you can walk through the sand dunes to the beach.


Five minutes' walk from a lovely, safe swimming beach that stretches north to the Manawatu River and south to the Hokio River. Our beach also boasts good fishing, both off the beach and offshore, with boat-launching a breeze.

Matariki Forest

The nearby Matariki Forest is a great place to take a leisurely walk. Every year it hosts Great Forest Events, the only forest marathon in New Zealand.

Other Attractions

The domain at the rear of the camp has tennis courts and is just a short walk to the Ocean Blue takeaway shop and restaurant, a dairy, café and a very welcoming and friendly bowling club.
