We havent been camping since having kids, but Waihi and the coromandel would be on our list.

We love the Thames coast, especially tapu campground as we can take our dogs along!!!! Would love this roomy tent !

We love camping at port Jackson every summer! πŸ™‚

Oh what a fab prize! We actually do not have a tent...yet! But I promised my daughters we’d get one & do some camping this summer! We have heard the blue lakes in Rotorua is beautiful, so will go there as our first post of call 😊🀞

Mine would have to be Motutere right on the lakeside 😍

Pauanui! 😍 this would be amazing for my family our little boy would have so much fun 🀩🀞

Love camping and getting away from it all, would love this for my teenagers so that they can start making their own adventures. We go somewhere different every time

Anywhere I can take my dog and enjoy the great outdoors πŸΎπŸƒ‍β™€οΈπŸ˜Ž

This would be perfect for my kids and I, I would love to take them camping anywhere, it's the one thing i have never managed to do with them yet

Anywhere and everywhere throughout the coromandel has great camping spots that you can get away from it all and back to nature.

so many beautiful spots in our wonderful country to go camping, would love to go some where off beaten track to just lax out

Blue lake top 10 holiday park in rotorua. Its magical ☺️

We love going to Pauanui. The inlet is great for the little kids to play in and the surf beach is great for the adults! Plus the whole family loves the ferry ride over to Tairua!

Yes please.our tent is getting old now Fav camping spot is bay of islands

We haven’t been camping with our kids but would love to head up to coromandel or around the east cape.

From my backyard to Waihi to Wellington Kaitoke. So many beautiful places in Aotearoa!

Mt Maunganui camp ground been camping there since way back. Such wonderful views πŸ–

πŸ–πŸŒžβš˜ I would love to gift this to my Family πŸ•πŸ–πŸŒžβš˜ this would be an amazing present πŸŽπŸŽˆπŸŽ‰ we love camping at Matari Bay up North. πŸ€—πŸŽ…πŸŽπŸžπŸŒž such beautiful country side would love my family to spend quality time πŸ•βš˜πŸŽ…πŸŽπŸ’™

Favourite place is on a farm next to a stream.

Oh wow what an epic prize! Our favourite camping spot over the years has been Ohope Beach! Fingers crossed we will be camping in style next time 🀞🀞🀞

Ruapuke out Raglan way. So beautiful and peaceful.

We go to varying spots around the Waikato/Bay of Plenty areas but normally go to Jones' Landing, Arapuni as we can take our dogs

My favourite camping spot is wherever our group of family and friends choose to go together. It’s who you’re with not where you are

I haven't been camping in donkeys years! I always think about it but don't have any equipment this would be awesome, the only places I have been camping in pikowai camping grounds and that was so fun!

I love Cooks Beach πŸ–
