The Whakatane Council is making overnight parking available during the summer period as of the 1st of October.

There will be six parking sites from Whakatane across to Ohope which will be appraised by Council staff for those holiday makers wanting to camp over in this district at those sites.

Camper vans must be fully self contained to camp overnight and no rubbish to be left in the allocated parking sites. Perhaps a reminder leave only footprints.

Kei te whakarite Te Kaunihera o Whakatane i etahi taunga waka whenua hei noho po a te kaupeka raumati ka timata mai i te tuatahi o Whiringa-a-nuku. Ka ono nga taunga waka whenua i nga takiwa o Whakatane me tawahi i Ohope e matawai ana i nga kaimahi o Te Kaunihera o Whakatane ka pehea te nohonoho o nga tangata manene e pirangi ana kia po mai i tenei takiwa i era taunga waka whenua ano nei he kainga tapuni mo ratau. Otira ko nga waka whenua e whakarite ana kia tau po mai ai me mau aua waka whenua i nga taputapu katoa ano nei he whare. Kia pupuri i nga putanga wai me te whare paku, ara hoki te tikanga kaua e waiho nga paruparu tangata ki nga taunga waka whenua manene. Me ki te korero ko nga tapuwae anahe hei tohu i te nekehanga o te tangata e kite ai.
