Olive Grove Lodge and Holiday Park - The Ultimate Backpacking and Camping in New Zealand

Welcome to Olive Grove

Experience the famous Kiwi hospitality at its best...

Come and relax in our friendly, warm country retreat. Wake to birdsong in our clean, green and eco-friendly quality accommodation.
Backpackers, campervans, caravans, campers and all lovers of nature will receive a hearty welcome at Olive Grove.

Our peaceful site is covered by a vast selection of specimen trees. Our well manicured 25 acre farm property is bordered by the Waianakarua river, which makes for a peaceful and tranquil setting, with no neighbours in sight and only trees and the magnificent cliff and hillside to view. These fine features in a unique setting very close to the beach are ideal for leisure or sporting activities.
You will find plenty of art work in and  around the lodge, all hand painted by your hostess Lynn's own hand.

Olive Grove is a great place to base yourself for day excursions - and there are plenty of those in our area.

Being placed between Oamaru and Moeraki for the Yellow Eyed penguins, New Zealand fur seals, the Moeraki lighthouse - and of course the famous Moeraki Boulders. One hour drive to Dunedin and fifteen minutes to Oamaru to view the Blue penguins at night.

You will need several days to explore what this unique and very special part of the country has on offer for you. So do not wait, enquire today and make your booking. We are looking forward to welcoming you.
