There is something really special about the Dargaville NZMCA park and apart from it being an easy walk into downtown Dargaville, it has these neat old historic buildings on it as well.

We popped in on our way to Poutu after being delayed by Auckland holiday traffic.
There were only about 5 other motorhomes or caravans there and few came and went for water so there was no danger of overcrowding 🙂
After arriving later in the day, we went for a walk into town for some fish and chips and a look around.
The next day, we were up early to check out the bench seat out on the point of the park which overlooks the harbour. Its a lovely spot which you wouldn’t know was there and a very pleasant spot to spend half an hour so while drinking your coffee which is exactly what we did.
As we returned to Rafe, we had to walk past a couple of other motorhomes and one of them was Rob who I knew from our time years ago when we had our old boat Rorqual at Bayswater Marina. Rob used to run a charter boat company from there and Fiona has since met his wife Helen.
A lovely couple who came and joined us in Rafe with a coffee for an hour or so chatting about all sorts.. It has been a while since I’ve seen Rob so it was nice to see them both.
It has been a while since I was last at this park but it never disappoints and with it being so close to town as well is a real bonus.

Excellent – now I know where we will stay when we head to Dargaville!
Also just read the post about the shower repairs. It has made me think I need to check out our shower floor …

Dargaville is a neat town and the NZMCA park is very handy.
With the shower, have a look at the bottom and see if you can see any stress cracks.
