“Want to sit outside after you've walked the Abel Tasman National Park, or just feel like soaking up the atmosphere of the Fat Tui environment? The best hamburgers in town - possibly the South Island, right at your doorstep. Relax while the team in the outdoor caravan put your burger together for you, on one of the outside barbecue tables. Absolutely worth the wait, which can be quite a while in the middle of the high season, but can be filled in with a stroll along the beach at Marahau.”
