Vallery - Quirky Campers

Introducing Vallery, the Gallery Camper

We have partnered with Quirky Campers NZ to create the world's first gallery camper!

Vallery has been designed for the ultimate Coastal Arts Trail experience: an easy, self-driving, art-lovers’ tour across the lower West Coast of the North Island. This new art explorer road trip showcases the incredible variety of creativity on offer and redefines what it means to take the scenic route!

The camper has been transformed into a fully curated gallery camper inspired by and featuring epic pieces of Kiwi art sourced from throughout the Trail.

Vallery is great for those who want to take it easy with minimal fuss. If you don’t like the hassle of making up a bed each night, then she'll be perfect. Even making up the third bed is a super quick job.

No need to worry about bad weather, there's plenty of room inside so you can stand, cook, dine and play with ease. When the weather’s great, pull out the awning, camping chairs and table and enjoy a complimentary bottle of wine! Rain or shine, summer or winter, this epic and totally unique van is the perfect blend of form and function.

Places To Stay

Whether you're riding in Vallery or your own self-contained home on wheels, there are plenty of places to park up at night throughout the Coastal Arts Trail.
