Golden Bay Visitor Centre

Welcome to Golden Bay - an extraordinary natural environment at the top of the South Island in New Zealand.

Golden Bay is New Zealand's most diverse and appealing holiday destination. Imagine a region with endless variety, where golden beaches, alpine valleys and tranquil fishing rivers share a close proximity with the sea.

Breathtaking scenery, arts and crafts, sporting activities. There's something for everyone.

Golden Bay is nestled into the South Island's north-west corner. A chain of steep and rugged mountains cuts its fertile river plains and valleys from the rest of the island.

Unless you're a migrating whale, you don't go past Golden Bay on your way to anywhere.

New summer hours from 26 December 2015 to 31 January 2016:
Monday to Sunday 9am - 5pm
Closed Christmas Day; open all other public holidays 10am - 3pm
