What’s more, a good night’s sleep if very important for everyone to have a good time and experience.

The campground looks out over Tasman Bay, Fisherman Island, and overlooks the Abel Tasman walking track. Sit back and watch the sunrise and set over the water as the people heading off into the Abel Tasman.

We have a mix of powered and non-powered sites for you to choose from. Whether you want to park up, or pitch your tent we open to everyones favourite style of camping. Check out our camp layout on the FAQ Page. 

So come on out and enjoy The Barn and all the Marahau adventures at the Start of the Abel Tasman.

Pet Friendly to Friendly Pets

The Barn is a relaxed and friendly space. As such we love it if you bring along your furry buddy. However, we are only friendly to friendly pets. The default position is that your pet must remain on a lead at all times, If your animal is causing disturbance to other guests then we may have to take action. You need to make the call if your pet is suitable in general to be around strangers and also suitable for the time of year and how busy it is. You are liable for your pet behaving obnoxiously. As such, we reserve all rights to remedy any situation as we see fit.

Games, Food and the Odd Outdoor Movie Night!

We have a selection of games like Table Tennis, Pool, Volley Ball, Kubbs, Connect Four, Kids Playground and more.

A Food Trailer is coming to the Barn this summer! We are excited to offer a range of snacks and foods on site. Every now and again we put on an outdoor movie. Just let us know if you are interested in a good night!
