New Dargaville park with History

This was my first trip to the brand new Dargaville NZMCA park and its a cracker.

Close to the water

It is right on the rivers edge with another smaller river on a side boundary and only a few minutes walk to the centre of town.

This was one of my first times of the new check in system and paying on the NZMCA App and it was easy. What a great system.

There are two old heritage buildings on the site with a couple of old jettys on the side of the river.

After a wander around watching the river water flow from all the rain we’d had, it reminded me of when I was a nipper just mooching around the waters edge and sitting on old wharves on a quiet day.

2 minutes walk to the Rotunda and the town

I went for a walk into town over the bridge and what a neat atmosphere. The old band rotunda and some public loos are only a few minutes away and although the brown colour of the Wairoa River isn’t exactly beautiful, there is a real sense of history and a real charm about the place.

All weather and safe

We’re very lucky to have this network of NZMCA parks and once the word gets out, this new one is sure to be popular.

  1. Thanks for your update on what they refer to as ‘the upside down river”. We are off to Europe for 4 months and plan on hiring a RV in France. I followed your blog last year which was a great read. Now I’m thinking of doing a blog… is it easy. That’s really my question. Any tips would be great…. Thanks. We are No 1528 Pop in the book! Might see you down our way in the summer!

    1. Hi Linnie
      It’s a great way for your family to keep up with your travels. They are quite a lot of work to keep up with the copy. If you just want it for your Europe trip, I’d just do posts on Facebook.
      Im glad you enjoyed the Europe blogs. I’ve got a ebook about to be published shortly on both the Sth Island and Europe (a book each).
      Cheers
