Written by mighway

If you are a lover of hiking and camping in New Zealand, then you need to check out Abel Tasman National Park and Abel Tasman Coast Track. Take a look at everything they have to offer visitors.


Whether you prefer to camp in the winter or summer, Abel Tasman has something to offer you. There are many sheltered locations that will protect you from the elements. It also boasts the most hours of sunshine in the country. No matter where you go, you will be treated to lots of shady trees and native birds.


If you love beaches, then you will love this national park. The mild climate makes visiting the beach possible throughout most of the year. The sand is a beautiful golden colour that is always inviting to visitors.

Cleopatra’s Pool

As you are walking along the track, be sure to take the spur that leads to Cleopatra’s Pool. The water at this natural rock pool is a unique Amber colour and makes a wonderful swimming hole. It even features a unique moss-lined water slide.

Falls River

You must traverse a 47-meter suspension bridge to cross Falls River. The river flows northeast through the national park and then flows into Tasman Bay. You can admire beautiful scenery along the way.

Traversing The Track

It can take as many as five days to walk the entire Abel Tasman track. Along the way, there are many interesting sights to take in. This track gives you the opportunity to take a kayak or another type of boat for part of the trail. Some great places to stop along the way include: Marahau Anchorage Bark Bay Awaroa Whariwharangi Wainui


Abel Tasman National Park has many great campsites for those who walk the track. We recommend your stay at Akersten Bay Campsite or Anchorage Campsite. You can find more campsite options in the area here.
