Welcome to the Timaru Top 10 Holiday Park, your choice for motel accommodation in central Timaru.

Set in a large, quiet park away from the main road, we offer a range of motel and unit accommodation to suit business travellers, workers, families, school groups, sports teams and tourists alike.

We are proud to be locally owned and run. Hosts Alison and Gordon Collister offer a friendly atmosphere and do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable and hassle-free.


Our Holiday Park is located close to both the beach at Caroline Bay and the city centre. We are ideally situated for exploring the city and its surrounds, or attending meetings and events in the CBD.

Timaru is a perfect spot to explore the wider South Island from, with easy access to central South Island attractions such as Aoraki/Mount Cook and Lake Tekapo. Roughly halfway between Dunedin and Christchurch, it’s also a great place to stop and break up your journey if you’re travelling further afield.
