Welcome to Whanganui River TOP 10 Holiday Park

 never been better…

****News Flash****
Update: While we clean up some mud we want everyone to know we are still going strong, with motels and other units all up and running and in the same great condition as always. Our fantastic communal facilities were unaffected and are all working and as clean as always, our games room is fully stocked with entertainment to keep the kids & adults occupied for hours, we've a playground, 2 trampolines and the jumping pillow is working too. Both our BBQ areas are fine and you'll find the chiminea fully stocked with wood to keep you warm outside on the chilliest of evenings. Come on down and see for yourself - don't believe the media hype, it's not all doom and gloom :-) And while our big playground is a bit muddy we're offering free dvd and board games hire to keep the little ones entertained.

The bad news: As with many other places close to the Whanganui River we were hit quite badly by the recent flood. The river showed us just how mighty she can be with the worst flood in recorded history. 
The good news: We are still open for business!! All our motels, all our kitchen cabins, 4 of our standard cabins and 3 self-contained units are absolutely fine and ready for guests. We have clear road access to these units and all our fabulous facilities. Plus we have spaces for campervans (and even for tents if you're brave in this cold weather).
The river is back down to normal levels and flowing calmly as usual.
For those of you that know us well, our goat and chickens are fine and living happily in our back garden and our aviary is still standing with the birds chirping away merrily.

More good news: The clean up is going very well and we can see more improvements by the hour. 

Bookings can still be made as usual and all our existing bookings can all be accommodated (although you may find your booking has been upgraded for free).

You can see some photos on our 
facebook page.
We hope to see you soon :-)


Welcome to Whanganui River TOP 10 Holiday Park, right on the banks of the Whanganui River.  Whether you need a top quality motel,  self-contained accommodation, budget-stretching cabin or a spot to pitch your  tent or caravan, we've got something for everyone! 

Keep up to date with everything that's happening here at the park on our What's New page.

Our park is spacious and peaceful and it is the only Qualmark 4-Star-Plus rated holiday park in the Wanganui/Manawatu area.

Whanganui River TOP 10 Holiday Park is the perfect overnight spot to or from your Interisland ferry trip, or a relaxing drive from your visit to Taupo, Rotorua, Waitomo, Hamilton, Napier, Wellington or New Plymouth. In the summer we're a relaxing drive away from the Tongariro crossing and in winter only a 90 minute drive from the start of the ski fields, so after an energetic day on the mountains come and relax here next to the peaceful river.

There's so much to do in Wanganui, you'll want to spend much longer than one night!

You'll find loads to do locally to fill your holiday. Wanganui is full of rich history and gorgeous Victorian and Edwardian buildings, then there's the Waimarie Paddle Steamer, Durie Hill Elevator and Memorial Tower, Virginia Lake, Bushy Park, Riverland Family Park, Kowhai Park, Bason Botanic Gardens, The No.12 Tram, Art Galleries and Studios, Museums, Beaches, Walkways, a great Café Culture and so much more. Plus it's all surrounded by kilometre after kilometre of beautiful countryside. Not forgetting of course the Whanganui River herself.
Our friendly,family park boasts great communal facilities including: an Outdoor Swimming Pool (heated to 30 degrees from September-Easter) complete with pool slide, a Games Room, Jumping Pillow, Adventure Playground, Trampolines, Petanque terrain, Strap Line, Aviary, TV room with Sky tv and big screen, large Kitchen, Dining and BBQ areas. Also for hire we have: a private Spa Pool, Trikes to ride around the park, Kayaks to take out onto the Whanganui River and mountain bikes to explore the local area. If that's not exciting enough we can organise a game of Paintball for you and your friends.           
We have a boat ramp where you can launch your own boat or jet-ski or take out one of our kayaks. Or we can take you 5 or 8kms up river and you can make your own leisurely way back to the park by kayak taking in some of the fabulous scenery you just don't get to see by car.

We are a Pet Friendly park, so just let us know if you want to being your family pet with you. You can see our Pet Policy here.

Most of our accommodation has outdoor decking and seating areas, some of them with great views of the river, others where you can relax watching your children playing on the playground.
Wherever you are, you're never far from the river.
There's plenty of picnic areas around the park where you can watch the Waimarie Paddle Steamer go by - we're the only holiday park to get a regular 'toot-toot' from a paddle steamer as it passes right by our grounds!  

Under new ownership since January 2014, previous visitors will notice many recent updates and improvements at Whanganui River TOP 10 Holiday Park.
We have extended our playground facilities with the introduction of a new trampoline complete with safety netting and basketball hoop, new toddler swings and a bouncy castle & slide for the summer. Our motels and self-contained units have all had a re-vamp with new paint, curtains, linen, lighting, art work and in the motels new sofas. We think you'll appreciate the updated look and feel.
In our TV room we've included more comfy seating so you can all gather to watch your favourite programme or the big match (and there's a box full of toys to entertain the tiny ones while that match is on too). We've added new machines to the Games Room to keep big and small kids entertained - and there's more on the way.
As well as a huge list of DVDs to hire we've also got a collection of board games for those days when you want to stay indoors.
And we are committed to our environment so we've improved our Recycling Station so that we now recycle as much waste as possible, plus we have chickens and a friendly goat who will all help to eat up your food scraps.

We've got many more plans, so there might be something new every time you come to stay.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
