Tips from locals
The Abel Tasman National Park: Patons Rock is on the doorstep of the world-renowned Abel Tasman National Park with its stunning scenery and beaches and fantastic walking and kayaking
One of the best walks in the world! Picturesque beaches, beautiful native bush. Something for all skill levels with boat trips available for day walks or overnight with a kayak adventure.
Turquoise waters and white sandy beaches makes this a stunning and tranquil place to visit. Its possible to do day trips into the park at various locations and there is a water taxi that can drop you off on a deserted beach and pick you up late.

“Quirky cafe in lovely garden. Food is delicious and there's lots for kids to do while you sit in the sun and enjoy your meal - from eel feeding, to exploring a maze, to climbing to the lookout of a pirate ship. Great fun for all the family. It does get busy during peak holiday periods. 15 mins from Hawkridge. ”
