Motorhome Rental & Campervan Hire Palmerston North

Campervan hire in Palmerston North

Perhaps best known as a popular site for business travel, Palmerston North is also a great place to visit for lovers of diversity, small arts scenes, and of course as a gateway to the Manawatu-Wanganui region of New Zealand’s North Island. Whether you’re headed to Palmerston for a convention, for work, or for tourism, make a point to take your caravan out to Manawatu Gorge, the entrance to which is just 17 km northeast of the central business district.

And then what? Campervan hire in Palmerston North

Travellers headed north to Lake Taupo or Rotorua after hiring their campervan in Palmerston will be interested in staying at the fun-filled Flat Hills Café and Tourist Park located an hour north of the city along State Highway 1 (take State Highway 54 out of Palmerston North for a scenic ride up to the Stormy Point Lookout). Particularly fun for kids and farm-animal lovers, this park features a maze and access to the farmyard. Parking is regulated throughout the central business district in Palmerston North, though there are numerous free spots as well. For example, there are some free car parks just outside of the CBD, such as on Waldegrave Street by the Manawatu Speedway. Before you leave your car or campervan, however, double-check what time restrictions may apply to spot you’ve parked in. If you need to leave your car for an extended period, you can park for up to 100 days for $7.50 per day after the higher fees of the first four days of your parking period at the Palmerston North Airport. Although located primarily on the north-south bound State Highways 56 and 57, Palmerston North is more or less the epicentre of the intersections of the State Highways of the southern North Island, such as Wellington-bound State Highways 1 and 2 or State Highway 3, which follows the western coastline. Grocery stores, such as New World and Countdown line the major roads of the central business district for your refrigerator- or chilly-box-stocking needs.

Top holiday parks in Palmerston North

Travellers headed to Palmerston North from the adventures of the northern North Island, such as the Tongariro Alpine Crossing or zorbing in Rotorua, may want to spend the night at the inexpensive Feilding Holiday Park. Get a look into farming life in Manawatu in this small town before heading on to your next adventure. Palmerston North Holiday Park is only the park in the area actually located in the city, just 3 km from the central business district. Nestled on the banks of the Manawatu River, this park is spacious and owned by a couple of real area experts who can help you get the most out of your stay! Just thirty minutes from Palmerston, the Himatangi Beach Holiday Park is ideally located near the beach and close enough to Palmerston to allow for commuting. Even if you’re headed to Palmerston for business, you can spend a night or two at this sunny park just 40 km southwest of the city. Located at the mouth of the Manawatu River on the beach-line of the South Taranaki Bight, the Foxton Beach TOP Holiday Park is also a great location for water lovers who are exploring the Palmerston North area.

"I joined up with SHAREaCAMPER at the onset and found the staff exceedingly helpful. They assisted me in gaining my TSL and getting my camper ready to go. The booking system is great, you know exactly when your camper is booked and can easily block dates you wish to use the camper yourself. It is so nice to get some income from the camper when it would normally be just sitting in the shed. Well done guys"
