These are the only signs of recognition we're aware of, around the country.
This is one of the few explicit road signs on a main highway to 'Katikati Naturist Park' in Wharawhara Road, just 3 km from Katikati on SH 2. (Note that there are a few 'standard AA' type signs near some local clubs, but they are quite often obscure references just to initials, or the names of the grounds which are not publicly recognised.)
This is a rare result! It's due to having a Naturist-friendly developer, in this case. This notice is
