If you love variety, lots of interaction with other walkers, and amazing seascapes and wildlife, the Abel Tasman Track is for you, very special. The DOC huts are amazing and well equipped. Take your time, there is lots to see.

We did the day walk from Totaranui to Awaroa. Fantastic walk, would recommend checking timings of water taxi off peak season, we didn't realise the last taxi was at 2.30pm and had to walk back which made for a long day (but was worth it)....More

Completed the trail here in about 2 days. It was very busy including the campsites but amazing all the same. Timed the tidal crossings well but you still have to wade through water which I wasn't prepared for (was running and didn't want wet feet...More

Caught a water taxi to Awaroa and over three days walked back to Sandy Bay in Mārahau. Completely surrounded my endemic and native flora and fauna the entire duration which was beautiful. The track also follows the coastline which meant you always had an amazing...More

Thanks to various water taxis, this track is easily accessible and can even be enjoyed by those with not much time to spare. Otherwise you can walk the whole track in a few days. Book early, as huts fill up fast! The walk is very...More

No restaurants on the track other than Awaroa. Every beach is fabulous though my favourite is Te Pukatea. Aim to do walks of around 3 hours. Sea kayaking is a good option.
