Welcome to the Kaikōura Responsible Camping Community Survey


As a Kaikōura resident, we invite you to participate in a survey about Freedom Camping in Kaikōura.

The findings from this research will give the Kaikōura District Council a better understanding of what Responsible Freedom Campers bring to the District and how responsible freedom camping could be developed in a sustainable manner as an element of the broader tourism industry.

The New Zealand Tourism Research Institute at the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) is conducting the research on behalf of the Kaikōura District Council.

Participation is voluntary and your survey answers are anonymous. You must be 18 years or older to participate in the survey.

Take the survey

This survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.

All answers are confidential and can in no way be linked to your personal details. By taking the survey you are giving consent to be part of this research.

The New Zealand Tourism Research Institute undertakes this research with the understanding that findings may be used in publications and presentations. A summary of the findings of this project will be posted on www.nztri.org in mid 2020.
