The Abel Tasman National Park is perfect for sea kayak trips with plenty of shallow sandy bays to pull up on and explore.

You can take scenic cruises and water taxis too, if you don't fancy a paddle. Just ask anyone of the team for advice and help with booking.

The Barn Backpackers has accommodation options to suit all weary travellers and other services include an internet café, comfortable kitchens, bathrooms, a shop and laundry.

We look forward to hosting you in the future, if you have any queries don't hesitate to contact us.

"Hi Nemo,

I just wanted to thank you for your fantastic hospitality at the Barn this New Years. We had a really great time in such a relaxed environment - we really felt looked after (unusual for camping!).

Kind Regards,"
