Motorhome Rental & Campervan Hire Whakatane

Campervan hire in Whakatane

This Bay of Plenty cultural hub has been home to the Maori since around 1200 CE and is still home to the tribe Ngati Awa and Mataatua Wharenui, New Zealand’s most well-traveled Maori meeting house. Whakatane’s coastline is featured with geothermally active islands, including Whale Island and the volcanic White Island. Officially the sunniest city in New Zealand, Whakatane is an excellent place to visit by campervan to load up on sun, cultural history, volcanic explorations, and beach crawls.

And then what? Campervan hire in Whakatane

The Thornton Beach Holiday Park, located 15 km west of Whakatane, is nestled right on the pristine white beach of the Bay of Plenty along the mouth of the Rangitaiki River. This beachside park is an excellent place to camp as you explore this beautiful area. Travellers headed to town can park at numerous free all-day car parks, such as on McAlister Street, Pyne Street, and Clifton Road. Particularly if you’re driving a self-contained campervan, freedom camping is permitted in numerous areas along the coastline around Whakatane. Find out more information from the Whakatane District Council. Whakatane is located just off of State Highway 2, which follows the North Island’s eastern coastline. State Highway 30 starts in Whakatane and intersects the North Island; take State Highway 30 west to Rotorua. There are both a New World (on Kakahoroa Drive, along the river) and a Pak’n Save (on King Street, which runs parallel to State Highway 30/Hinemoa Street) supermarket to help you fill you chilly box before you begin your explorations of this beautiful region.

What our SHAREaCAMPER community says

"Since we are very busy in our jobs, the camper used to sit in our driveway for long period of time and noone used it. So we had the idea to give other camping lovers the option to try and go away for a trip with a motorhome for an affordable price. We are happy with the platform, we feel supported well and our concerns are taken seriously."
"I rent out my motorhome because I don't want to have it sit in my driveway without being driven. Being in touch with the travellers is a great experience that I enjoy a lot."

"Thank you for inviting us to join SHAREaCAMPER NZ. It is great for owners of Camper Vans, Motorhomes, and Caravans, in New Zealand to share them with the people of the world, when they are not being used, so that they to may experience while they are on holiday in New Zealand, the travelling to beautiful places, and sites of New Zealand."
"Without SHAREaCAMPER we wouldn't have bought our camper! The customer support is professional and we have met many nice people, some of which even came back to hire our Dreamer a second time."
