Awesome Trips in The Abel Tasman

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.

The Barn is your home away from home at the Start of The Abel Tasman.

A Great Range of Accomodation

Something a Little Different

We are semi off-grid gathering our own water sources, processing our own liquid waste, composting, gardening, farming and trying to use as many eco friendly options as possible. Our current projects for 2021 is the removal of all Willows from our creek and replanting eco sourced Kanuka as well as finishing of the last of the Gorse on the main site. 

Starting NZ Nurseries in 2021 and 2022 has/will help the future regeneration of our site as well as the rest of Tasman. We are continue to explore many options for the nursery. We also want to support artistic endeavours as much as possible with the Artist in Residence Program. Check out their Projects!

We would love you to come out and stay supporting us and some of the things we are trying to support.
