APPLETREE BAY CAMP
15 tent sites for up to 30 campers. Beachside camping, toilet. Water supply - treat, boil or filter water.
According to D'Urville in 1827, Appletree Bay is "...a most agreeable place and more rich in birds than any part of the coast. It is surrounded by an immense and profound forest of easy access."
Early visitors wrote of Maori people living here.
Named by D'Urville "La Grande Plage" (The Big Beach), the origin of the name Appletree Bay is uncertain.
