Gay Takaka

Takaka, South Island
New Zealand

Takaka, South Island, New Zealand.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Once you cross over the Takaka Hill, you’ll discover a region rich in wildlife, forests, art and attitude. The main township of Takaka is a bohemian retreat, with a funky café culture and some of the finest organic, vegetarian and vegan cafes in New Zealand. Close to the gorgeous Abel Tasman National Park, Takaka is a popular resting place for tourists, with loads of accommodation options for the gay and lesbian traveler ranging from gay friendly motels, boutique guesthouses to the simpler backpacker hostels and camp sites.

Most visitors get to this area by car or by bus out of Nelson. Some prefer to fly in by charter direct from Nelson or Wellington but once you’ve settled, there’s plenty to see and explore.

For starters, there’s the Ngarua Caves and Harwood’s Hole on the Takaka Hill and just outside Takaka is the sacred Te Waikoropupu (Pupu) Springs. If your looking for a little sun, sea and sand there are plenty to beaches to choose from such as Pohara and Tata, and Wharariki Beach on the rugged west coast. You can enter the magnificent Kahurangi National Park from Collingwood or the Cobb Valley, south of Takaka. If you are a hiker, why not try one of the short walks at Wainui Falls, the Grove or Paynes Ford.

One other bonus of the Golden Bay area is that some of New Zealand’s top sculptors, painters, potters, jewellery-makers and bone carvers have made their home here and you can visit most studios throughout the year.

So, for lovers of the outdoors, Takaka, South Island, New Zealand has much to offer the gay and lesbian traveler.
