The nearest major town to our Adventure playground is Nelson, just 40km away where many great hotels and restaurants can be found. We are less than 30mins away from the Nelson airport terminals. The small holiday resorts of Golden Bay, Kaiteriteri, Tahunanui and Motueka are a relatively short drive away. By car we are roughly five and 1/2 hours away from Christchurch and 2 ½ hours drive from the Picton Ferry Terminal.

We recommend the Sakura Bed & Breakfast for friendly, family accommodation with superb cooking (a choice of Japanese or European). For the most comprehensive range of accommodation from camp sites and cabins to self contained units and motels take a look at Tahuna Beach Holiday Park. Nelson has plenty of other hotels, motels, camping grounds, B&B and restaurants too. Call and ask us for the scoop on where to go around here.
