Visitor Information

Located at the road's end, also the beginning of the beautiful Abel Tasman Great Walk. Marahau is the base for many of the walking and water based activities that allow you to explore the park; including kayaking, water taxis, sailing and more...

Two cafés, good swimming at high tide, expansive tidal estuary and sand flats to explore at low tide. It's also the last place to buy last minute supplies before entering the park.

The Park Cafe, established and run by Jane and Yirka Ritschny since 1986, is situated on the doorstep of Abel Tasman National Park, the smallest yet most popular National Park in New Zealand.

The Park Cafe is open in season from September to June from 8am to 5pm for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea.
We will open for evening dining by mid October and our woodfired pizza oven starting beginning of December until early March.

Mainly due to its prime location, The Park Cafe is the ideal stop for a hot breakfast, a cup of coffee with a slice of our house-baked cakes, substantial lunch, woodfired oven pizza or indulging dinner.

Our reputation for delectable, European influenced food and friendly service has been growing since we were a small food kiosk.
Over the last 29 years we have grown into one of the best eateries in the Tasman region and became a popular venue for music gigs and private functions.
