OVERVIEW

Abel Tasman national park is located at the very top on the northeast of the South Island. It’s a go-to destination for New Zealanders as there is more sunlight here than anywhere else in New Zealand.

The sand on the beaches ranges from sparkling white to deep gold.  But it’s the stunning golden beaches that this area is renown for and they can mostly only be reached on foot. However, there is an opportunity to take a water taxi out to a few of the beaches, Totaranui, Torrent Bay and Awaroa. We make good use of the water taxis in order that you can make your way back to a hot shower, a comfortable bed and chef-prepared meals. So that you can relax and chill in comfort.

The hikes make their way through temperate forest, over isolated beaches and up and over escarpments with excellent views over the crystal clear water of the becalmed bays and inlets. Spotting dolphins and seals is another highlight as you walk.

history

New Zealand is and was a British colony for a long time, but it is interesting why is it named after the Dutch province Zealand, or Zeeland as it is in the Netherlands. It’s the history of the Abel Tasman National Park that in part helps us to answer that. It was the Dutch navigator Abel Tasman that first saw this land (or at least this was the first European recording of sighting New Zealand) some 370 years ago and again in 1642. The Maori people having arrived in 1280. Whether Abel Tasman set foot in New Zealand is unlikely.

The name Abel Tasman pops up everywhere in New Zealand and Australia. There’s the Tasman Penisula, the home of the 3 Capes track, Tasman Strait and of course Tasmania just to name a few places.

Abel Tasman anchored his two ships in Golden Bay, which is close to Wanui Bay the end of the Abel Tasman walk. On 18th December 1642, Abel Tasman, the first European to visit New Zealand-Aotearoa. The local Maori from the Ngati Tumatakokiri tribe launched their canoes (waka), and during the ensuing skirmish, four of Tasman’s crew were killed. Fearful of the warlike disposition of the local Maori, Tasman did not end up setting foot on land and instead surveyed the coastline that now bears his name from the water.

The local indigenous tribe are called Ngati Tumatakokiri. They have lived here for several hundred years, surviving by fishing, hunting in the forests, and cultivating the local sweet patato which they call kumara. Archeological evidence does show that most of the time the Maoris visitation was seasonal, with iwi (tribes) living mostly along the coast, gathering food from the sea and cultivating kumara.

Captain James Cook visited the area some 128 years after Abel Tasman. But he like Tasman never landed. Cook sailed straight past the entrance to Tasman Bay, on the 29th of March 1770 and again in May 1773. Captain Cook never got close due to unfavourable weather conditions i.e. the wind blowing the wrong way.

The Europeans settled here in the 1850s, which like in many other places led to deforestation, clearing of whole hillsides and environmental degradation. Fortunately for us the efforts to reforest the land by DOCS and a group of local enthusiasts have been successful, but remnants of the degradation are still evident around Marahau.

It was in the mid- 1950’s, conservationists and other interested people recognized that this coastal area was in need of protection. In 1942, 37,000 acres of crown land was turned over to the Departments of Conservation and made a national park. It was named  Abel Tasman; it was befitting, as the year of inauguration was the 300th anniversary of his visit. The Able Tasman Park has grown to now cover over 55,000 acres.

Flora & Fauna

Like in most parts of New Zealand the eradication of feral animals is of prime importance. The ferals are causing massive destruction, particularly to wildlife. The stoats, possums and rats, among others are very effective killers. They can kill up to 68000 native birds a day across the country. They have contributed to the extinction of many species of native animals. Over half of the native fauna is now extinct since the arrival of humans in the 1200’s.

Fortunately, Project Janszoon has been working 24/7 to restore the parks and its’ ecology to its former glory. They have managed to eradicate 30,000 dead ferals, planted over  50,000 trees, and 280 released birds so far. Its a great success and as you walk you will get to spot endangered species along the Abel Tasman track.

The most common birds on the tracks are Weka, Shags, Little Blue Penguins, Bellbirds, Oystercatchers, Shearwaters and Fantails. Bar-tailed Godwits can be seen at Marahau at low tide migrate all the way from Alaska arriving in September. Heron, Pie Stilts, Gannet and the plain old red billed seagulls are also common.

Weka look a little like a kiwi to the uninitiated, Gallirallus australis are also known as Maori hens. These birds are endemic to New Zealand (i.e. found only here). Once common in Abel Tasman, they suffered a precipitous decline due likely to nest predation by feral mammals. A small number of birds were re-introduced by Project Janszoon and they now seem to be doing well. They are smart, opportunistic scavengers and may be seen around campgrounds and picnic areas.

Bellbirds (Maori name: korimako) You will hear the melodic piping song of these small birds throughout Abel Tasman National Park. Light grey green in colour with a line of white at the base of their wings. These are a different species to the Australian bellbird (aka bell miner), but they are part of the same family – the Meliphagia or Honeyeaters. They feed on fruit, nectar and small insects, as well as lerp from the leaves of beech trees.

Orca have been spotted more often on the Abel Tasman Track than for a long long while, mainly because the fur seal population is now thriving. And we know Orca love to eat seal. Hunting had formerly decimated the fur seal population, but once a marine park was established the seals quickly started to grow in numbers.  New Zealand Fur Seals (Arctocephalus forsteri) Maori name: kekeno. These are the most common seals in New Zealand. Having been hunted to the brink of extinction, their population has grown substantially over recent decades. The last total population estimate was 200,000 (2001). It will be higher now. Fur seals may be found hauled out on rocky shores throughout mainland New Zealand, the Chatham Islands, and the Subantarctic islands, as well as southern parts of Australia. If you have seen fur seals in Tasmania, they are the same species. In Australia, this species is known as the Long-Nosed Fur Seal. Seals are very good swimmers and weaned pups will sometimes travel great distances. They feed mainly on squid and small mid-water fish but also take larger species further off-shore. If encountered, seals should be left alone as they do bite. Do not disturb seals or other wildlife.

Common, Dusky and Bottlenose dolphins also frequent the idyllic bays chasing the fish that remain uncatchable, now the area is a marine park.

This forest was dominated by three species of southern beech (black, hard, and silver) and several species of podocarps (rimu, miro, matai, kahikatea, and Hall’s totara). Podocarps are a group of conifers that are dominant in the Southern Hemisphere. In contrast to most conifers which have light, airy seeds that are dispersed by the wind, podocarps have fleshy seeds that are dispersed by birds. Plaques on the trees along this nature loop identify the trees. It is recommended that you walk the loop in a clockwise direction.  The most common flora include the massive Beech trees, tree ferns, manuka and kanuka and Rata which turn a bright red close to Christmas.

Wilding Pines. These are a pest. Self-seeding Radiata pine trees originally from California, are escapees from local pine plantations and not wanted in these native forests. Much of the vegetation here on the southern side of Abel Tasman NP is second or third generation regrowth. The forests were heavily logged for wood like rimu, totara, and other podocarps. With protection, it is now slowly regenerating.

Hakeas Some of the trees with woody nuts may look familiar. These are willow-leaved hakeas from Australia. They were brought to NZ as garden plants for hedges and escaped. Hakeas thrive in the dry, acidic soils here along parts of the Abel Tasman track, and need the heat of a bush fire for their nuts to open.

ACCOMMODATION

Abel Tasman Lodge

Spacious guest rooms spread across an acre or so of land with our looks over the garden make this a perfect luxurious getaway after a long day of walking.  Able Tasman Lodge is run my good friend Scott and his lovely wife Jocelyn. Scott supports the All Blacks and surprisingly he’s still has time out from watching reruns of All black games to run his excellent establishment. If Australia were as good as them I’m not sure I’d have time to run Auswalk.  Scott is a wealth of knowledge about the region and can assist with anything activity you might be thinking about doing.

The trailhead of the Abel Tasman Coastal Track, one of New Zealand’s Great Walks, is only 300m away from the Lodge. The beach and nature, including the outstanding birdlife, is right at your doorstep.

Awaroa Lodge

On the edge of the beautiful forest in the heart of the Abel Tasman National park sits Awaroa Lodge. There great views over the forest and lake from the rooms, and an intimate style of service create and an ambient atmosphere that will allow you to soak up all that this national park has to offer. The restaurant is excellent as is the 4 star service.

Serenity Lodge

Serenity, as it is called, is a tranquil haven from the hustle and bustle of 21st-century life. With only 3 rooms, all with garden views, you aren’t likely to feel crowded in. Home-cooked elaborate breakfasts are one of the real highlights. Try Lisa’s homemade bread it is simply scrumptious.

The house is located right on the edge of Abel Tasman National Park. The small village of Marahau is located in the Nelson/Tasman region on the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island. The entrance to the park is only a stones throw away

 

 

 

Transport

Our walking holiday begins and ends in Nelson, although if you are driving you can make your way to Marahau. We shift your luggage by water taxi from Marahau thereafter.

As you start your self-guided walk out of your accommodation, you will only have your day pack. By the time you finish your trek for the day, your luggage will be waiting for you at your destination.

On the Abel Tasman walks we pick you up with a private transfer from Nelson airport or from your hotel

 

climate/weather

Overall, the climate of the Abel Tasman is temperate. It is only slightly colder than Auckland and is touted as having more sunlight hours than any other place in New Zealand.

Terrain

The terrain of the Abel Tasman walk is varied, with some reasonable ascents and descents down on to beaches and back up over small hills. There is a little bit of beach walking but nothing to worry about I promise, there are no long beach walks.

Almost all the tracks are well maintained and even underfoot.

 

when to walk

There is no time like the present to take a walking holiday. The Abel Tasman National park is an excellent choice for a short stay and walk.

Each season offers a different set of opportunities for a walker. Do you enjoy walking in the cooler air, or do you prefer the hot summer so you can swim in the waterways on in the sea. Do you hate the rain, or do you not mind a little bit of drizzle? Taking all of these into account will provide you with the best assessment of what time of year that might best suit you.

Take a look at our climate and weather information page to learn more about what the Abel Tasman National park will look like for your walking holiday.

walking fitness levels

The Abel Tasman  self-guided walks are along trails that are well-marked and well maintained. The trails themselves are well-kept and easy-to-follow. Occasionally, there are steeper sections both descending onto beaches and ascending back out once again up onto escarpments. They include a great combination of easy, moderate, and challenging walking terrains that will offer the perfect balance for every level of experience.

walking essentials

As with any journey, it is essential to be prepared for your self-guided walking holiday. While we will be transporting your luggage from accommodation to accommodation, you will still be carrying a light-weight day pack with you. Here is what we suggest that you carry with you each day:
