Abel Tasman National Park

Coastal Abel Tasman National Park blankets the northern end of a range of marble and limestone hills that extend from Kahurangi National Park. Various tracks in the park include an inland route, although the Coast Track is what everyone is here for – it's New Zealand's most popular Great Walk.

Even if you're not keen on tackling the walk, kayaking or cruising amid Abel Tasman's hidden coves and beaches is accessible to all visitors.
