Responsible Freedom Camping Ambassador Programme

Responsible freedom camping ambassadors educate freedom campers on  Whangarei’s freedom camping rules.

Our ambassadors visit popular freedom camping sites and help campers to feel welcome and understand the rules.

If a friendly local tells a visitor about where to dispose of rubbish or how long they can stay, they are more likely to follow through. They might also like to talk about fun things to do in the area. 

Our Responsible Freedom Camping Ambassador Programme operates in summer between December to February, and includes:

  • a friendly education programme to inform campers about Whangārei's expectations of them
  • monitoring and enforcement initiatives
  • a data collection and reporting system.
