Camp Wellington is a cosy campsite in the heart of Wellington's coolest arty enclave, Shelly Bay.
Situated on a stunning peninsula, we have a great location for those who love art & nature.
We have a cosy, warm lounge & kitchen area (closes at 9pm) with super fast, unlimited WiFi....
It’s just a 15 min drive to the city (the bus stop is a 35 min walk along coastline), 7 mins to the airport, Wellywood and the Weta Cave.
We’re snuggled beneath a pine forest and right next to the ocean with late sun and views of the city. Little blue penguins (korora) also live on this stretch of coastline.
You can enjoy the many walking trails, cycle the multitude of mountain bike tracks, kayak the beautiful harbour or simply enjoy the relaxing sea-side setting.
Whilst we are a quiet & relaxing site, we can’t promise complete peace & quiet – we’re in amongst the action of Shelly Bay and it can sometimes be a busy area on sunny weekends when locals come to spend their leisure time here. It’s also a working area – the artists have their studios/workshops here and may make some noise from time to time.
What we can promise is a unique experience, surrounded by art and nature, with fabulous views, hot showers and warm welcoming hospitality.
We feel lucky to be here, and would love to share it with you.
Free UNLIMITED fast WiFi available to all guests
