The Point farm originally covered 600 acres of farmland and ran 2000 sheep. Today we have 90 acres and run 300 Drysdale sheep on the farm which forms part of the Kaikoura Peninsula. While staying at The Point come and see the sheep shearing show and catch up with the famous “Ram Man”; he eats out of the palm of your hand.
Enjoy the beauty of the natural landscape of Kaikoura with a walk to the Seal Colony and around th Peninsula walkways.
The campsite caters for self contained campervans, motorhomes and caravans. Nestled at the base of the foothills on the grounds of the family owned farm, the campsite offers magnificent sea views across the bay and to the mountains beyond. Here at The Point Campsite we are taking camping back to the basics. We offer a quiet, spacious spot to park up for self contained vehicles. And yes, we’re pet friendly.
No powered sites, no toilet blocks, no noisy traffic BUT lots of green grass for the kids or dogs to run around on, a beach across the road for swimming, sand castle building or rock pool exploring, hills to climb for a view well worth it, star gazing with no bright lights the list goes on.
