Sustainable Tourism

Nelson City TOP 10 Holiday Park – Responsible Tourism Statement

Our mission is to provide you, our guest with an enjoyable stay with the least possible impact on the environment. Our guiding principles are Kaitiakitanga & Manaakitanga; to care for, protect and manage this piece of New Zealand.

We aim to preserve the natural beauty of this Holiday Park and the wider area in order that future generations may enjoy it as we do today. This means carefully meeting the needs of today while giving thought to the needs of tomorrow. We would be grateful if you assisted us in taking care of our piece of New Zealand.


What We Are Doing

Energy & Water Saving

In addition to building energy efficient facilities and buildings, we are installing devices that reduce the amount of electricity and water used in the Holiday Park.


Waste management stations are located in the Holiday Park to encourage the responsible disposal of rubbish.


We actively donate and support local schools, community based clubs and activities. This enables us to give back & support community initiatives.


We are actively involved in maintaining our protected trees and planting new gardens within the Holiday Park.


What You Can Do

Energy & Water Saving

  • Turn off lights and electrical appliances when not in use.
  • Re-use towels by drying them on our clothes lines.
  • Close doors during cold weather to keep heat in.
  • Limit the amount of time you spend in the shower.


  • Sort your rubbish correctly in the waste management stations provided.
  • Leave unwanted magazines and books in the Holiday Park TV Room for others to enjoy.


  • Look after our trees and gardens.
  • Be respectful of the Holiday Park facilities & fellow guests.
  • Walk into town when appropriate.
  • Take only photos & leave only footprints.

What is the most important thing in the world? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata. People, people, people.

Refill NZ

In New Zealand, an estimated 828 million single-use plastic bottles are thrown away per year. That’s about 168 bottles each, or 165 Olympic swimming pools! This contributes to the plastic pollution in our oceans, and is getting into the fish we eat.

RefillNZ aims to make refilling with tap water the new norm – by making free water more freely available.

Participating businesses have a RefillNZ sticker in their window – to show that they are a Refill station and you’re welcome to come on in and fill up your bottle – for free!

So, fill up your water bottles with some of our gorgeous H2O and let’s reduce the amount of plastic pollution on our planet. You don’t even have to be staying in our Holiday Park. Just call into reception and ask one of our friendly team where you can fill up your bottles. Bottoms up peeps!
