Day Passes & Birthday Parties at Whanganui River TOP10 Holiday Park

*****22nd November 2021 Update*****
Following a robust risk assessment of our Holiday Park, we have made the difficult decision that whilst New Zealand is dealing with a Covid 19 outbreak, we will not be able to offer Day Passes or Birthday Parties at our holiday park. 

This decision has not been taken lightly and we appreciate that this may disappoint a lot of people who enjoy using our park facilities in the summer. However we feel that, along with additional safety measures we are taking within the holiday park, and to best reduce the risk of infection spread for our overnight guests and our staff, we need to reduce as much as possible any additional risks that larger numbers of day visitors
 may bring into the park.
We will keep the situation under review and reassess the situation no later than 31st January and update all our guests on our website.
We hope you all understand the reasons for this difficult decision and we hope to be able to see day visitors again in the not too distant future. 


All day visits will need to be booked in advance please. We are no longer accepting walk in day visits.
We understand this may disappoint some people and we apologise for any confusion as people adjust to the new system.

Birthday parties, family gathering, social gatherings, school groups and holiday programmes are still welcome to come and enjoy our park facilities, but will now need to book in advance and will be asked to pay a 20% deposit. 

You can request a booking by calling Reception during office hours on 063438402, or pop into reception in person. You will be asked to complete a Request Form. You can complete a Online Day Visit Request Form

When:    Between 10am and 4pm daily
We are unable to accept any day visits from Christmas Eve to 2nd January inclusive or Easter Weekend.  We are also unable to accept day visitors when the park is at capacity.
