Enjoy your trip, use a shuttle provider and don’t worry about car parking
DoC this summer are encouraging all visitors interested in the Tongariro Alpine Crossing to use shuttles from Whakapapa, National Park Village, Turangi, Taupo or Ohakune. Car park access is narrow, unsealed and limited in numbers. We are encouraging visitors to plan ahead and book with an approved shuttle provider/concession holder. This will support the best experience for our visitors.

We also are sending this message out to all of DoC visitor centres national wide, exploring using apps such as Campermate and Google Adwords to extend our reach. We are also contacting rental car companies and campervan companies to share this message for us. Please share and help get this messaging out there.
