Motor Homes

As a member of NZMCA you can take advantage of our beautiful park like grounds, here at Solway Showgrounds. The grounds are expansive and have a variety of surfaces for you to park your motorhome on.

There is plenty of history dotted around for you to explore. The majestic grandstand is a feature of the landscape, as are the many sheds and arenas across the grounds.

There will be times during the year where we hold major events. During these events the facilities will not be available. Plenty of notice will be given. Please refer to the events section of the website or check with us via the contact form.
