Wainui Park

A piece of paradise on the Banks Peninsula

Wainui Park is a favourite venue for a huge number of schools, community groups and corporate groups from all over the South Island, we are your one-stop-shop for accommodation, conference, camping and outdoor programmes.

We have something to offer all types of groups, including a campground which is also open to private campers.


Wainui Park offers a wide range of accommodation types, from tent site camping, cabin bunk rooms, to lodge style ensuite conference accommodation.


Many school groups come to Wainui Park to enjoy a wide range of adventure-based activities, with experienced instructors whose expertise lie predominantly in running school camping programmes and adventure based learning.  Our facilities are purpose built for groups, especially schools, and can provided your school with the ultimate outdoor experience.

Our staff know how to provide effective programmes for schools, and we have two programme packages available to choose from, depending on your school’s budget and teacher involvement leading activities.  You can also discuss with us what your school wants to achieve in regards to theme – team building, leadership or adventure, and we can develop your programme with this in mind.

Let us host your next school camp!

Located just over an hour from Christchurch, corporate, community and sports groups can utilise Wainui Heights, for conferences, retreats, or a team building experience that offers something quite different to an urban location – with scenery, environment and outdoor activities that cannot be duplicated anywhere else.

Wainui Park offers accommodation, conference rooms, catering and can tailor a programme of team building activities designed specifically for your group. From high ropes to coasteering and kayaking, our highly trained and enthusiastic volunteer staff team will ensure you have memories and an experience that will last a life time.

If your group wants to be more autonomous, you have the flexibility to organise your own schedule and catering as you wish – you are invited to take exclusive ownership of the facilities.

Enquire today about how we can tailor the perfect conference, retreat or event for your organisation.
