THE Rules

To preserve the pristine nature of our stunning location and help ensure that we can party here for many years to come, please check and respect these bottom lines.

Waahi Tapu Sites - PLEASE KEEP OFF

Tapapakanga Regional Park contains significant archaeological sites that are important records of history of the tangata whenua, Ngati Whanaunga and Ngati Paoa and are protected by law. Please respect these areas: they are clearly marked and are off limits to the Splore audience.

No Glass

So we can all continue to frolic about in bare feet, please don’t bring any glass containers. If you need essential items just decant them before you come.

Smoke-free Parks

Tapapakanga Regional Park is designated smoke-free under Auckland Council Parks policy. We encourage you to respect this. Cigarettes will not sold onsite. There is absolutely no smoking inside tents and structures.

Bag and Vehicle checks

In line with our resource consent and liquor licence, our security teams will check vehicles and baggage upon entry and at certain access points during the festival. This is to prevent any banned items like BYO booze, glass, fireworks and weapons. We appreciate your patience and cooperation in this.  

No BYO booze

The smuggling and consumption of BYO alcohol contravenes our resource consent and liquor licensing agreements. Because we want to stage the festival for many years to come, we take this very seriously. 

No Pets

Please leave your pets at home as bylaws ban any non-human pets in any shape or form on the park. Human party animals are welcome.

No Open Fire

All open fires, fire toys, pyrotechnics and fireworks are banned in accordance with Auckland Council Parks regulations. Contained gas BBQs are OK if used safely and well away from flammable materials. 

No antisocial material.

This includes but is not limited to weapons and gang patches. Private generators and PAs.


Discrimination on the basis of gender, race, sexual orientation or origin and any form of sexual harassment be it physical or verbal have ABSOLUTELY NO PLACE HERE! 
We respect each other. If you need assistance come speak to any member or our crew, security team, volunteer, bar staff, stage crew or vendor. There are safe spaces if you need to get away from it all,  come to Camp Mum’s caravan in camp HQ or the old homestead down by the beach. 

Fill youR car with Friends

We're determined to minimise our impact on the environment by reducing the number of vehicles coming to Splore. A great way to do this is to get more peeps into fewer cars through carpooling and ride sharing.

We have created the Splore Carpool Club - Ride Sharing is Caring, on Facebook. This is the place to connect with other Splorers, fill up your car and hook up sweet rides. Remember vehicles with 3+ people will earn partial refund on their their parking pass.
