Conservation in the Abel Tasman

Like many parts of the world, the Abel Tasman has its fair share of environmental challenges, but thanks to the work of local community groups and philanthropists, an incredible conservation story is emerging. Groups such as Project Janszoon, the Abel Tasman Birdsong Trust and the Department of Conservation are working hard to restore the Park back to its original biodiversity and the progress so far is very promising. is a locally produced collaboration of the following businesses

“Nothing says New Zealand quite like the Abel Tasman. Our whole day was full of postcard moments – lying in the sun on the golden sand, swimming in crystal clear pools and walking along pristine New Zealand coastline. Amazing!”

Nigel, Auckland – NZ

“Abel Tasman is truly one of the most beautiful corners on Earth, it is definitely the “must-do” thing in New Zealand. The nature is stunning, food is amazing and people are great! There is plenty to do and experience here. Your trip to New Zealand would not be complete without visiting Abel Tasman.”

Dasha – Ukraine

“We will never forget our time in the Abel Tasman. Our boat driver was friendly and knowledgeable. He made the whole experience seamless and easy – dropping us off at one beach and picking us up at another after a day of exploring the most amazing places I’ve ever seen”.

Jamie, Wellington – NZ

“This is the New Zealand we dream of now that we are based in Europe – a perfect Abel Tasman experience. Our whole day was full of postcard moments – lying in the sun on the golden sand, swimming in crystal clear pools and walking along pristine New Zealand coastline…finished off with a refreshing local craft beer – awesome!”

Andrew – Holland

“The Abel Tasman is paradise on earth. Seriously, it doesn’t get any better than this. Take one of the smaller water taxis, it’s by far the best way to see and explore the best bits of the Abel Tasman.”

Steph, Wellington – NZ
