The Moutere is a unique part of the Tasman region.

The Moutere, between Nelson and the Abel Tasman National Park Bordered by the Mount Arthur range to the west, the rise of hills leading to the Moutere signal the beginning of the Kahurangi National Park, a walkers paradise and New Zealand's second largest national park.

You get here on the the scenic Inland Moutere Highway - an alternative route between Motueka and Nelson in the Tasman region. Perfectly situated halfway (about 35 minutes) between Nelson city and Abel Tasman National Park, it's the ideal base for a varied Nelson and Tasman holiday.

As you drive, you'll see the historic Upper Moutere village, rolling hills and fertile valley landscapes and everywhere, signs for craftspeople, hand-crafted and locally produced food, cafés, vineyards and artists.

Idyllic countryside, a huge community spirit and passionate people, make this a place to come and experience.

We look forward to seeing you
