Who are we?

Avondale Motor Park is a place were strangers become friends, tourists become locals, and stories become history. It has served the local community, visitors from all over New Zealand and the world for over 20 years. Some people have called it home ever since the beginning. The journey has not been without its challenges. Tourism has been changing rapidly, and the visitors are expecting the best experience possible - they definitely deserve it!

Why do we need your help?

The park stayed stuck in the past with one foot. Owners changed, the cabins had been getting older, internet is just not as fast as it needs to be in 2017, and traditional channels just did not cut it anymore. The park was on the verge of being closed in late 2016.

And here is where our team comes in. We took over the park in December, with one primary goal in mind. To keep it going! Our holiday park is one of the few left in Central Auckland, and without it there will be practically no place left for many of its residents and visitors: backpackers with their tents, European tourists in their campervans, Kiwi families enjoying the holidays, and locals using at as a base to make an honest living.

What are we doing and what are our plans?

We have already started working hard to make the park better for everyone. Here is the list of things we have already done in the park:

  • We moved the reception to a new building downstairs to make it more accessible for everyone.
  • We are currenlty replacing all the linen in our flats and cabins. Smells so fresh and feels so soft!
  • We added a couple of extra powered sites. More coming!
  • We added a new TV in our lounge.

We also focused on our digital efforts:

  • We moved all the bookings from a paper only system to a cloud based solution, so we know exactly who is staying where and how much space we have left.
  • We added a few improvements to our website, to make it more user friendly, also for everyone using their mobile phone.
  • We made an online booking system on our website, so our visitors can book a stay with us faster.
  • We teamed up with local ogranizations, such as Holiday Parks Association.

And here is a long list of things down our pipeline - hopefully we can do it all with your help.

  • We want to add more powered sites.
  • We want to upgrade the cabins and flats with new kitchen utensils.
  • We want to buy extra dryers, so more guests can do their laundry at the same time.
  • We hope to upgrade our WiFi network to work across the entire park.
  • We are looking to provide more ammenities for the guests, like laundry detergent and coffee.
  • We want to refresh our playground and make it even more fun for the kids.

All of these will take time, but we are confident we are on the right path. We are currently raising $5000, which of course cannot cover everything, but it's a small, but important step towards a better holiday park for everyone. Join us and help us create our new story!
