Picnics and barbecues
Good picnic spots are located throughout the park.
For a small fee, groups can pre-book sites at Whareroa and Paekakariki. Please contact the park ranger at least two weeks prior to your intended visit. The ranger will issue you a permit and allocate a picnic site.
Costs for pre-booking picnic sites are: $20 per site minimum for up to 20 people then $1 per person for groups of more than 20.
If you are getting a commercial marquee set up for your picnic/activities then there is a $500 fee to have it onsite.
Maps of the picnic site are available to download from the the main Queen Elizabeth Park site here.
