Abel Tasman NP – Walking

Day 34 (19.2.2013): Abel Tasman National Park

If you don’t like adventurous or windy or steep roads – or all together – then don’t come here. Otherwise, give it a try – it’s beautiful up here. Today we had some of the most adventurous roads of all – lots of orange construction fence coz parts of the roads have been falling off (looked a bit like a shark bite). Right next to it the sheer cliffs & it falls down big times.

Today I joined Lin on the Abel Tasman Track up to her first water crossing. We were running a bit late but made it perfectly in time to have a good picnic lunch and her having a safe crossing which is possible 2hrs either side of low tide.

This was a beautiful path through lush rainforest and along golden beaches. a hard 3.5hrs a lot of steep uphill and downhill … but definitely worthwhile doing.

Lin will continue on the Abel Tasman Track, then kayak one day and hike the final day again.
I will kayak the Abel Tasman in its whole from tomorrow for 3 days.
