Day 10 cont…
We arrived off the ferry in Picton and drove straight to a winery/ café where they did a mini wine tasting for $5. There were ×2 whites, one rose and one pinot noir.
We then drove onto Abel Tasman to our accommodation called ‘the barn’.
You can stay in a tipi for a bit less and it’s really nice, got all the same facilities as a normal bunk room.
Day 11: Abel tasman
Today we got up early as we were doing a long day trip: the abel tasman canyoning. This is a whole day experience and includes a roll lunch and all the photos. Would definitely recommend the trip, especially if you haven’t done anything like it before. It had ×2 abseils, ×2 zip lines, ×2 rock jumps (6m and 8m) and lots of cool rock slides. The trip is really pricey but probably… good value for money.*
try and work out all the activities you think you’ll want to do ahead of time to manage your budget and to ensure your doing the best activities in the right places.
Day 12 : Westport
We then headed to Westport, arriving in time to do some surfing. *
maybe not the best place to surf if your a beginner. Pretty strong currents and really big waves that were close together. You could always just ask to check the conditions before you sign up.
That night we stayed separately to the rest of the group at some where called Waynes world. We really recommend this accommodation: it was only $20 for the night and all the facilities were great. The lady running the place was so lovely and made us feel so welcome and offered for us to use the washing machine for free! The whole place was so clean: great bathroom and kitchen.
