Freedom Camping

The Hurunui is perfect for exploring, adventuring and getting back to nature. We’re proud of our charismatic small towns, vast landscapes and rich history.

Visitors to the Hurunui play as much of a part in keeping this area beautiful as we do. Thank you so much for taking good care of this district while you visit and following our 'fundamentals' for camping.
