Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

When a Coastlands Carpark isn't a Coastlands Carpark

Amanda from Paraparaumu

Hi, I was stung with a $65 parking ticket for packing in a 30 minute car park which can be found in the area opposite Countdown frontage. I have lived here 2 and half years and didn't realise that this small area is treated differently from the rest of the carparks. Why I have no idea, particularly as these parks are very near one of the main entrances. I returned to confirm that I was in the 'wrong', looking for signs. There is a sign about 2-3 stories high saying that some areas may have different limits, very dangerous when you are supposed to be watching the vehicle in front and then saw that there were two miniscule signs with 30 on them and they only apply to one row of parks.

Anyway for those of you new to the area, please be aware that the parks closest to Countdown have the least time available either 30 or 60 minutes, at busy times I doubt anyone would be able to do their grocery shopping in less that an hour particularly when queuing during COVID levels. Rest assured I will be writing to complain to the management of Coastlands, during these times they should be encouraging people to shop not stinging them with a huge fine for patronaging the stores!
