Sandspit Holiday Park is one of those places I’ve wanted to try out for months so I was chuffed when I found a good reason to stay here and with reasonable weather too.
It is an easy walk to the wharf for ferrys to Kawau so its well placed if you want to do a day or two at the Island. Its also an easy walk to the Sandspit Yacht club and the brand new marina that has just opened there.

We dropped in out of the blue after a few days of heavy rain so we were walked down to check the grass waterfront parks to see if they were up to handling Rafe’s weight. With plenty of gravel and sand about, I decided it felt pretty solid and we’d give it a go.
As it was off peak in winter, the cost for two of us was $32 with power for the night which I thought was great value.
After settling down Rafe, plugging in and opening hatches, I went for a walk with the camera.
They have some amazing quirky cottages and the buildings are great. There is even Horace the Morris parked in the grass.
The ablution block is almost brand new and the shower and toilets are amazing.
We went for a walk before the sun went down to the ferry jetty where boaties were coming in and a few were fishing.
A really interesting place. We’re planning to go back with the Grandies as they could easily stay in one of the many cottages there.
