"What a nice place to rest after a 7 hours walk down the coastal track. It was very hard to find a B&B here in the Easter, so fortune smiled on us and directed us here"
Yanni and Hans, Denmark

Enjoy the Nelson and Motueka markets

"We have found kindness and warm hospitality in this quiet lovely countryside. We suddenly felt at home in this cozy little house. Your 'continental breakfast' is better than any English breakfast in other places- and all the apples around made us remember the Apple country in Switzerland where we live"
Doris & Giuseppe, Switzerland

From Picton & Nelson To Motueka

From Nelson, drive towards Richmond then you can either follow the Coastal Highway past Mapua to Motueka or take the Inland Highway through Upper Moutere (the scenic routes) - either way has art studios, galleries, cafés, and some 22 wineries along the way. Or you can take the bypass, which is a little quicker (but you are on holiday).

Tasman is the second-fastest growing region in New Zealand, popular for its long sunshine hours.

Motueka, with a population of 12,000, provides the last opportunity to stock up on supplies and camping gear before you head into the Abel Tasman National Park.

The alternative route between Richmond and Motueka is the inland Moutere highway, across the Waimea Plains and Moutere Hills through Upper and Lower Moutere.

There are regular bus services from Nelson, via Motueka to the Abel Tasman National Park.
