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.
