Don’t hesitate to come and join us and be sure to check out any winter HOT DEALS that pop up on our website Book now at








We have a hero among us.scott 1

Scott our groundsman and volunteer firefighter , along with other local stars like Mel from “The Flatwhite Café”, took on the challenge of the Sky Tower Stair Climb…….with full firefighting kit on.Phew!

They made it to the top in good time and raised a whole heap of money for leukemia research. So look out for Scott on your next visit and give him a pat on the back






20th anniversary20th Anniversary celebrations

Congratulations to Ian, Vicki and family,who are celebrating 20 years of owning and running Waihi Beach TOP 10 Holiday Resort. Ange put up a fascinating display of past photos over Easter weekend that attracted a lot of attention from our regular guests who have been here to witness some of the changes that Ian and Vicki have made in the last 20 years. They have changed the park from a traditional kiwi family campground to an up to date, sustainable, lush, new kiwi family holiday resort that has lead the way for other parks around New Zealand.

As part of the celebrations we have had and continue to have some awesome give-aways and deals throughout the year. Make sure you have liked our facebook page to stay in touch with all the latest news and deals.


End of an era

2016 has also been a time of great sadness for us at the park and for those that know it’s long term residents.taking-care-of-business-big

Pai Tapurau passed away in May. He will be forever remembered by those of us that knew him as the wonderful proud gentleman that helped to keep the park beautiful for so many years, He was a teller of great stories and always had a real twinkle in his eye and a huge smile on his face. You can find his story in our main kitchen facilities and in “our stories” here in the website.

We also saw the passing of our longest running van owner Mrs Noelene Reynolds, who will also be remembered with great fondness by Ian, Vicki and other staff and guests that knew her and her family well.
