Best Abel Tasman Day trip

Abel Tasman National Park is a scenic highlight of the Nelson-Marlborough region. But if you’re pressed for time and can’t spend multiple days hiking the park, this day trip packs a lot into the few hours you have available. Cruise around Split Apple Rock and then anchor at Tonga Island Marine Reserve. Once there, take the opportunity to explore the Park on your own terms: go snorkeling by the beach, take a kayak down the coast, or disembark and hike along the Pitt Head loop overlooking Te Pukatea Bay.

This place was amazing. It is a beautiful trail of native bush that leads to a spectacular waterfall. It is easy to miss the sign as it sits in the middle of nowhere, we missed it and had to turn around. So many Wekas and Pukekos running around. It is also a super easy walk, suitable for all fitness levels.

Before arriving in Takaka, I had the Wainui Falls on my list of things to do, however, it was getting very late in the day when I finally made it there. Fortunately for me, a young couple arrived at the same time and I was comfortable to take on the walk with their company. I thoroughly enjoyed the walk in and out, seeing and hearing the Falls was totally worth it and I made it back to my car before nightfall. The Wainui Falls are simply spectacular... they will take your breath away!

We were recommended this walk as a must do during our visit to Golden Bay. So pleased we did. Easy walk, very gradual incline to the waterfall on a well formed track. Great photo opportunities along the way. Lots of native birds in the trees. There is a cafe at the start of the track in a lovely garden setting.

The entrance to these falls was an easy drive from Pohara where we were staying- only a couple of km. It had been recommended to us and the recommendation was spot on. It was an easy walk in (and only about half-hour each way) through lovely native bush which ran beside the river and then crossed it via a swing bridge which is a bit of fun. There were a couple of spots at the beginning that looked like good swimming spots in lovely fresh cool water. The views of the waterfall when you get there were good. We were there after rain so not sure if they are always this good. It also looks like you might be able to find a couple of more challenging spots to swim in at the base of the falls also. Would definitely recommend to others.

It's free and a beautiful easy walk up a gorge to an amazing waterfall. It's about 20-30 minutes walk each way. Beware that you do have to cross a swingbridge. And the falls themselves are stunning and easy to see from this natural viewing area. Just do it, you won't be dissapointed.
