    Attractions

    The Sea Kayak Company

    These guys know what they are doing. Super friendly, professional and good gear. They offer a range of trips from half a day to several days. You can explore the entire Abel Tasman Park from the sea. This is one of the most beautiful parts of the world.

    This is a fun packed day out. The trip takes you canyoning down the Torrent River. It covers the whole excitement spectrum from the water taxi trip out to the jumps, zip lines, abseils and slides. The team are very friendly and professional.

    Lovely platters and wine tasting, worth driving out to sit in the stunning surrounding of the vines.

    Places To Eat

    Sprig & Fern Motueka Restaurant

    A boutique pub with a nice garden bar out the back which gets good sun. They serve their own craft beer with a simple but tasty menu selection. The platter for two is a great deal and goes well with the beer. A bit expensive but that is a reflection of the quality.

    Super cool cafe set amongst lovely gardens. Children's playground, lovely food and friendly service. There is also a wee gallery attached.

    T.O.A.D Hall Store & Cafe Restaurant

    This is a great cafe and also farm shop with local produce. The food is faultless both from the cabinet and from the menu. There is a large outdoor area with a playground for kids.

    Traveller Tips

    Abel Tasman National Park

    Just out of Motueka in Marahau is the entrance to the Abel Tasman National park. This is an amazing park with a track that takes you to Golden Bay, over a 5 day walk. Heaps of cabins and camping sites along the way. Book at the local DOC office.

    Maitai River

    There are lots of swimming holes in the Maitai River. Ask a local to point you in the right direction of them and cool off in the river!

    Cable Bay Walkway

    If your planning on a day trip to Cable Bay there is a great walk that takes you from the 1st car park right to the top of the hill. Great hike, with some steeper areas at times and worth it for the view at the top!
