The town of Motueka in the South Island of New Zealand lies close to the mouth of the Motueka River, on the western shore of Tasman Bay. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Tonga Island Marine Reserve and Riwaka Resurgence Walk. Step out of the city life by going to Kaiteriteri Beach and Kaiteriteri Mountain Bike Park. When in Motueka, make a side trip to see Helibike Nelson Limited in Nelson, approximately 38 minutes away. The adventure continues: learn about winemaking at Rimu Grove Winery, head outdoors with u-fly extreme, and indulge your taste buds at Mrs Smiths Vegetables & much more.
