Abel Tasman Walks

Beautiful beaches, clear water, giant ferns, stunning views from high on the hills, a 47m suspension bridge, fur seals, and a lovely climate make Abel Tasman National Park the ideal place for a Great Walk.

Because Abel Tasman includes one of New Zealand’s 10 great walks, the track quality and whole experience is excellent. You can walk as little as you like or up to 5 days to complete the whole coastal track.

Bring your swim gear, it’s fantastic in summer. Take a water taxi to the start of the track, walk for a day or up to 5 staying in huts or cabins along the way.

Abel Tasman Coast Track

We did a 5 hour, 15 km  walk along the Abel Tasman Coast Track, organised by ourselves, this was the best way to do a one day walk on the Abel Tasman Coast Track.

We had to book a return water taxi that dropped us off at Awaroa Bay and picked us up again at Torrent Bay.
