COVID 19 LEVEL 2 UPDATE: 12/08/2020
NZ South Island is currently at Level 2: As previously, Sunrise will remain open to members only for the duration of our time at COVID-19 Alert Level 2. Advance bookings for the summer season are still welcome, but please be aware these will be subject to the alert level requirements at the time.
Our club members are both domestic and international and most try join us during the summer season. Others visit when convenient. We encourage fellow naturists affiliated with other domestic or international clubs to visit us. Our facilities include a newly refurbished club house kitchen, clean and modern shower, laundry and toilet facilities.
Our 100 year old club house offers 3 tidy bedrooms, a social lounge, TV and games area, wood burner, a large kitchen with modern heating and cooking facilities (upgraded December 2018).
At night, glowworms can be found at certain times of the year along the driveway creek overhangs and brush.
Please respect the nature of our club is social nudity and the desire of our members to uphold our safe and family friendly environment. To enquire about visiting or camping, please use our contact form. This form simply tells us a little more about you (and outlines club rules, do’s and dont’s). Submitting this from is required no matter if you are a returning visitor or if this is your first visit.
Your enquiry is automatically directed to our club hosts, who will make contact with you.
A note about our tariff structure: Nelson Sun Club is not a commercial camp. It is run for the members, by the members. There are no paid staff. Our members pay a nominal annual fee and run the club and maintain its facilities as volunteers, without remuneration.
Members of reciprocating New Zealand Sun Clubs and other international travellers with INF membership enjoy visitor and overnight tariffs in line with other, similar NZ Sun Clubs.
Other visitors are most welcome to try us, to experience our naturist lifestyle. We simply encourage such visitors to enjoy what’s on offer and consider becoming members of Nelson Sun Club. Membership enquiries: NSC Secretary
Note: For those travelling with self-contained vehicles, we do not have a dump station for motor home waste, however public dump stations are fairly close by. We would sincerely appreciate if the arrival of campers that have fresh water holding tanks, please arrive with their tanks full and their grey and black water tanks empty.
Due to our location among pine forestry blocks, undulating rural hills and valleys, mobile phone signal is generally weak. Unfortunately this means no WiFi. We have members and visitors who count that as a blessing! However, for those who must stay connected, we do have a commercial signal booster device hardwired in the club house. It amplifies and improves signal delivery to mobile phones within the immediate vicinity.
For those with mobile phones on pre-paid / top-up / pay-as-you-go or limited data, we recommend you consider a top up to your credit or data cap limits prior to your arrival.
