About 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 and now offers both couple and family sized glamping tents.   

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.  

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.  

Drive to Hawera just off Surf Highway 45 and climb the water tower, visit the Elvis Presley museum and the world famous Tawhiti museum.  Learn More
Then head to Stratford for a bit of Shakespeare.  Visit Stratford’s famous Glockenspiel clock tower and watch the five minute rendition of Romeo and Juliet, then head to Percy Thompson Art Gallery and shop for a little bit of local art. 
Discover the Forgotten World Highway and head to the republic of Whangamomona. Learn More

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