    How to get here

Nelson/Tasman is well connected with Air New Zealand and Originair offering daily flights, regular Cook Strait ferries provide access between the North and South Island and SH 1, 6 & 7 all lead to Nelson/Tasman.

Our base is located in Marahau just over an hours drive from Nelson & 30 minutes from Motueka. We offer a morning and afternoon bus service from Nelson and Motueka. We’ve got plenty parking onsite, including room for campervans. For overnight trips we have a locked chain across our carpark for extra security.
