Whitebaiting Season

Whitebaiting Season - Wairau Diversion Camping Application

The whitebaiting season in Marlborough runs from 15 August to 30 November. Self-contained vehicles can apply for a permit from Marlborough District Council to stay for a longer period than two nights while whitebaiting. At all times, if you do not have a whitebaiting camping permit, the maximum stay is two nights.

Permits for the 2020 whitebaiting season became available in May 2020.

Permits to camp overnight will only be issued for the period from 15 August to 30 November.

Thank you for helping to keep Marlborough beautiful, and enjoy your stay.
