Holiday park

During the school holidays Suzanne Viveen​ and Michiel​ Overweel​ gave their Motueka family of five a taste of city life by staying in a holiday park near Christchurch Airport.

The $55 a night cost of a caravan site at the North South Holiday Park was a bargain compared with what they would have paid for a motel, and Viveen said they could afford a few treats like visiting the nearby Antarctic Centre.

“The kids really love the campsite because there’s a playground and other kids around to play with.”
