Zealand chief executive Fergus Brown.
Holiday Parks New Zealand has 300 member parks around the country.
‘A few holiday parks are already booked out over the peak Christmas/New Year period but most have plenty of room to welcome more visitors,’ says Brown.
‘The annual occupancy rate for holiday parks is under 20%, so there is seldom any problem finding sites for guests in campervans, motorhomes, caravans and tents in a holiday park.’
The growth in guest nights is partly attributed to the increase in the range of accommodation and facilities available at holiday parks, which gives visitors plenty of options.
