Golden Bay is located on the north coast of the South Island and was created in December 1942, 300 years after the Dutch Explorer Abel Janzoon Tasman sailed in. It features the world-famous Abel Tasman National Park with its Coast Track, the most popular "Great Walk" in New Zealand. This 51 km track hugs the picturesque coastline, climbing to offer spectacular views, then down again to another of its pristine golden sand beaches. At the southeastern end of Golden Bay is Takaka, a small town today considered a mecca for vegetarians, organics, arts and crafts and hippies, many of whom have establish their alternatives cafes and various cottage industries in and around the town. The area around Takaka Hill is notable for its cave systems, with New Zealand's deepest cave, Nettlebed Cave located nearby. Paynes Ford is situated about 20mins walk from Takaka and has over 200 bolted climbs.
