Arguably the most beautiful national park in New Zealand, the Abel Tasman is predominantly a coastal walk, and is admired for its golden sandy beaches, tranquil lagoons, fascinating rocky outcrops and beautiful, unmodified estuaries.

One of the inland tracks takes you to Harwood Hole, the deepest vertical shaft in New Zealand (176 metres) it drops to an underground river that emerges below and flows into Gorge Creek and then into the Takaka River where it finds its way to the Riwaka resurgence.
