With incredible views of the Abel Tasman Coast and tucked among the Marahau Valley, The Barn is your gateway into The Abel Tasman National Park. Established in 1993, the Barn has been home to both explorers and beach holiday seekers. It’s a spot for adventures and families alike.

Choose from an incredible range of accommodation options including Beachfront Bach’s, Private Cabins, Ocean View Campsites and Dorm Rooms. The camp is full of character and memories, it’s cozy and classic and makes you feel right at home. Enjoy a range of activities from our front door, watch the sun come up from your cabin and settle in under the stars.

Sustainable Effort

We are semi off-grid gathering our own water sources, processing our own liquid waste, composting, gardening, farming, running a nursery and trying to use as many eco friendly options as possible.
