Welcome to Onaero Bay Holiday Park

Just 11.5km north of Waitara, Onaero Bay Holiday Park is in a spectacular location, on both sides of the Onaero River and surrounded by native bush. It is a great outdoor environment, along with limited cellphone coverage, which means this is the ideal spot to get away from it all! Our quiet family camp has 57 level power sites and 30 tent sites scattered across well-manicured grounds.  

Surf. Cycle. Hike. Discover. 

Situated in the Taranaki region on New Zealand’s west coast, Onaero Bay Holiday Park is the perfect home away from home for outdoor enthusiasts or cultural trail blazers. Start your adventure here where the river meets the sea!

Explore picture-perfect Mt Taranaki, stretch your legs and enjoy the natural beauty of Egmont National Park.  Hikes and family-friendly walks are perfect to soak in the backcountry and geological heritage.  

Drive Surf Highway 45 and take in Taranaki's coast boasting 180 degrees of ocean swells, along the rugged and wild coastline.  

To round up your stay, be culturally immersed in the art trails, museums, galleries and café culture of the region. Experience genuine indigenous Maori customs, history and traditions in beautiful New Plymouth.
