In the spirit of Manaakitanga (hospitality) and Kaitiakitanga (guardianship), the local community welcome visitors to enjoy our extraordinary region, and take on a hosting responsibility to ensure you have a safe and memorable experience here.

As guardians of our special environment, we have a deep connection with the stunning natural landscapes that surround us. We ask you to join us on our journey to becoming a sustainable visitor destination, so that future generations of locals and visitors can continue to enjoy this extraordinary place we call home. 

Below are some resources and tips for responsible travellers such as yourself, so that you can stay safe in the outdoors and help us to care for Nelson Tasman's environment and wildlife.
