Abel Tasman NP is famous for its sunny weather, but me and my friends had to undergone heavy rain! But it was a fun experience at the end. The walk was not that difficult and swing bridge was very exciting as well.

My favourite place in New Zealand! Lovely walking through the forest with stunning views of the bays & inlets. We took a rib boat ride along the coast & walked back to Kaiteriteri.

Definitely worth a visit! You can trekking from 4 hours to 4 days; do camping, enjoy the beautiful beaches, the landscape, nature, etc. everything! also take a boat en change your position into the park and see another place. It is really amazing! Definitely recommended!

Hi jpkmckenn, to be honest I am not sure, however I would think the area is pretty safe regardless, you would be recommended to not leave any valuables out though. If you are getting to the start of the track with an... 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.
