The township of Motueka has the backdrop of the Mount Arthur Range of Kahurangi National Park and looks out over Tasman Bay. The climate is sunny and mild, ideal for horticulture. This 'fruit belt' region grows hops, apples, kiwifruit and grapes amongst others.

Trampers love the region for its three national parks, Nelson Lakes, Kahurangi and of course the Abel Tasman.

Explore the coastline by sea kayak or water taxi, take a cruise or walk the Coastal Track, one of New Zealand's Great Walks.

There are several sandy beaches close to Motueka, including Kaiteriteri and this one at Little Kaiteriteri.

The Motueka region is renowned for its artists with plenty of studios and galleries to peruse.

After a hard morning in the galleries wind down by tasting local wines at one of the Nelson region's many wineries or cafés.

Our clean rivers are famous for trout fishing.

Fishing guides can be hired to take you to secret fishing holes in the back of beyond.

So base yourself at Avalon Manor Motels for day trips to Farewell Spit, Golden Bay, Nelson region and Kahurangi, Abel Tasman or Nelson Lakes National Parks.
