Abel Tasman, New Zealand’s smallest National Park, 40 minutes away, is probably our most famous landmark and one you will no doubt be visiting. Kahaurangi, situated close by, is the country’s newest National Park. It has rugged beauty and alpine scenery to match anywhere in the world. Another Treasure is Nelson Lakes National Park a little further afield. We are close to the Motueka River renowned both for trout fishing and it's swimming holes.
