Auckland Airport’s Campervan Park is situated just minutes from the airport, so for a different type of accommodation, why not put up at the park instead of a hotel? It has all the amenities you’d expect from a campervan site and is fully fenced with CCTV. Children can enjoy paintball and climbing the ropes, while adults can shop, play golf and visit a butterfly sanctuary.
