Weka Pass Railway

This is a historic rural railway using both vintage steam and diesel-electric locomotives on 12.8 km of scenic line through the unique limestone beauty of the Weka Pass out of Waipara where superior weather patterns provide crystal clear air and high sunshine hours. The Weka Pass Railway is a totally voluntary organisation, whose members are dedicated to the preservation of New Zealand's rail heritage. Initially the railway runs across flat farm land and passes a large irrigation reservoir and vineyards, before climbing grades as steep as l:50 ( 2% ) as it winds through the cuttings in the Pass.

Black State


A family owned vineyard on the warm, sunny slopes of the Waipara Valley, where the vines grow through clay and limestone soils to produce intense wines completely expressive of this site.

Great site!

We had a great weekend at your site, the toilets were always kept clean, and loved the nice touch of fresh flowers in the toilets, kitchen was immaculate and always clean no cut off point to when you can use it, everything about the site was great, it was our second stay at the cabin and will DEFINATELY stay there again. Only one request get another cabin then one or two of our other friends can stay, we have people coming over from the UK and would love to bring them there.

Staff were so helpful, and the on site Hectors fish and chip shop is excellent value for money and fantastic food, Love the chips and gravy and the blue cod is to die for.

It’s a great place to relax and explore the beach and lots of walks, and value for money.

Canadian Cyclists

Hi Kevin and Gail,  we are the two Canadians on bikes that stayed with you for two nights a few days ago. We have stayed at dozens of holiday parks so far on our bike trip through New Zealand and now consider ourselves quite knowledgeable on them!  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your park. The facilities were great and the surroundings beautiful. We particularly enjoyed the beach adjacent to the park and the Amberley Saturday market. Great conversations with other holiday park users in the outdoor lounge adjacent to the kitchen. Good “vibes” at your park!  We recommend it to other travellers.

42 Years on…

Leithfield Beach Holiday Park is a very peaceful place to holiday with lovely clean facilities , friendly owners and beautifully set out with many extensive gardens, around the park. If you are lucky you will see a family of quails, plenty of bird life, a rabbit or two and of course a few dogs and their owners going for a walk.
There is a paddling pool for the little ones, and swings and seesaws near the tennis court also for ones use. Many good walks are around the area also in particular the beach walk to the Leithfield village, or walk up to the cafe for a coffee and a bottle of wine, maybe? The market on Saturdays is worth a visit and the many unusual shops full of treasures in Amberley.
But you could also be like me and relax in the sun with a good book. A most enjoyable destination, for the past 42 years.

Your camp was lovely and peaceful!

“Just to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your camp for 7 nights. Your camp was lovely and peaceful and the facility’s were always clean, the showers always lovely and hot. Really lovely to see that you allowed dogs in the camp. We don’t have a dog unfortunately ,but really nice to see other peoples dogs being included in their holiday. All the dogs were very well behaved and a lovely treat to have them around in the camp. Also we really enjoyed the new years eve entertainment. We were really impressed with the band you had playing on New Years day, They were wonderful and a great selection of songs. I will highly recommend your camp to all my friends. Thanks so much for a lovely holiday.” January 2014
