Sustainable Tourism

Takapuna Beach 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 our plans to build 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 plan to plant mainly New Zealand natives throughout our park, which in turn conserves water use, as they require minimal watering. We also hope to encourage native bird life into our Park. We will use natural material and colours to enhance our natural landscape and buildings.


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


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 and recycling correctly, using the waste management stations provided.
  • Leave unwanted magazines and books in the Holiday Park dining area 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.


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

RefillNZ aims to make refilling with tap water the new norm – by making free water more freely available. More refilling, less plastic!

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 lets 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!
