New Zealand Motorhome Caravan Association to Open Motorhome Park

With the increasing number of campervans cruising through Foxton, the New Zealand Motorhome Caravan Association decided to open its very own Motorhome Park.

“This is an impressive vote of confidence in Te Awahou Foxton’s future as a visitor destination,” Horowhenua District’s Mayor Bernie Wanden said.

“The good news just keeps on coming. We are a national awards finalist as our country’s ‘Most Beautiful Small Town.’ The newly re-developed River Loop park is attracting plenty of families from out of town and has just achieved an international Green Flag Award. And Foxton Beach, of course, is bustling as an all-time summer favorite,” Wanden added.

The NZMCA represents more than 58,000 families and over 107,000 people nationwide.

“What attracted us to Foxton is that it’s the ideal stopover between the cultural and culinary delights of Wellington and all the adventures National Park and Mt. Ruapehu have to offer,” says NZMCA National Manager, James Imlach.

“Our members tell us they are entertained by cultural attractions, walkways, cycle trails, beaches, rivers, and amazing views and scenery. Te Awahou Foxton with the Beach, and the Tararua Ranges in the background, offer all of that. And the UNESCO-recognised wetlands, where you can watch the kuaka/godwits or a flock of spoonbills from only some 100 meters away. That’s just perfect,” Imlach added.

Foxton Racing Club Foxton Racing Club is an all-weather horse racing and training course that organizes dressage, showjumping, and other show events. It is home to Moutoa Pony Club and the Central Districts Equestrian Society.

“We are already used to hosting big events, like the annual National Pony Club Show Jumping Championships, when lots of campervans come to stay on our grounds,” says Steve Kupa, President of the Foxton Racing Club.

“It was a logical next step for us, to work in partnership with the NZMCA – who have full support from Horowhenua District Council. The Motorhome Park will be beneficial to everybody. The club gets extra revenues, visitors get a great environment where they can comfortably stay for a few days, and Foxton and Foxton Beach get people from out of town spending their holiday dollars,” Kupa added.

“We painted the fence and refurbished the signage on State Highway 1, and we’re making our new visitors feel very welcome!”

“We want to offer our visitors a great all-year-round experience,” says Mayor Wanden.

“There are so many attractions and activities to discover here. Plus, we organize events almost every public holiday, whether it’s Waitangi Day, Easter, Matariki, or ANZAC and Labour weekend. It’s all happening in Foxton!”

Foxton and Foxton Beach are home to adrenaline-pumping experiences such as jet ski rental along the Manawatū River and the Cable Wakeboard Park. Visitors can also take advantage of the peace and quiet multi-cultural immersion at Te Awahou Riverside Cultural Park.

Foxton has been a motorhome-friendly town for a long time.

“We’ve now taken the next step,” Wanden said.

“The new Motorhome Park is a truly big step up in collaboration between the NZMCA and Council. It maximizes opportunities in Foxton, which are to the benefit of all parties involved.” Wanded ended.
