Golden Bay is 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.

Golden Bay Visitor Centre Opening Hours :

You have 24/7 access to brochures, maps, activities, providers of accommodation, food and transport outside the Visitor Centre for visitors' use.
