Where is it?


Motueka is a holiday town of 6,000 people, half an hours drive form Nelson city, the top of the South Island. 20 minutes drive will get you to the Able Tasman National Park which has some of New Zealands finest coastal trails. Although there are mountains near by, Motueka itself is flat and easy to cycle. There are many places of interest to visit, eg. pottery establishments, art galleries and home craft shops. There are lots of opportunities for adventure tourism such as hang-gliding, parachute jumping, microlite and small aircraft rides, mountain bike trails and all water sports as well as the well renowned Kiteriteri beach which is only 20 minutes drive from Motueka.
