Spencer Beach Holiday Park
+64 3 329 8721
This 81-hectare coastal reserve adjacent to Brooklands Lagoon was once part of a sand hill sheep run. There is a nice camping ground and an excellent adventure playground where daredevils from pint-sized to grown-up, can test their mettle. There is also a wildlife reserve whose inhabitants include Arapawa pigs, old English goats, Arapawa sheep and wallabies. Screened by sand dunes, the nearby beach which is fully patrolled in summer, has a wildness and sense of isolation.
