Department of Conservation Awaroa Godley Head DOC Campsite New Zealand

Awaroa Godley Head DOC Campsite

Department of Conservation Awaroa Godley Head DOC Campsite in the Whakaraupo near Lyttleton and Christchurch, Christchurch, New Zealand.

Department of Conservation campsites are popular with Kiwis and can be crowded in peak seasons. Some require booking but most are first-come-first-served, which means get there early or have alternatives ready. Probably the cheapest accommodation to be found, they are perfect for campervans or those traveling on a budget with a car and tent. Prices and details can change, use the links below for the latest information and any current alerts in the area.
