The Barn

Cabins & camping at the start of the Abel Tasman

Since 1993, we aim to provide an awesome experience for those looking for a break from city life and explorers of the Abel Tasman National Park. Our goal is to provide ever increase quality and depth of experience in a relaxed environment for everyone at a reasonable rate.

Great communal areas

With three kitchens to suit a range of seasons, multiple outdoor decks, fireplaces, hammocks and picnic tables galore, there is a place for everyone to eat relax and mingle.


Get back to Nature

Sharing two boundaries with The Abel Tasman means we get a lot of bird life visiting from The Park.

Being remote out here means we get some amazing night skies, sunrises and sunsets. So light up the fires, put some food on the grill and sit back with some friends. 

Our market garden for some seasonal produce, some berries and a few fresh eggs!

Awesome day trips

There is a great range of things to do for a range of day trips outside of just the Abel Tasman park, including the Ngarua Cave, Harwoods Hole and the Riwaka Resurgence.
