Set in the heart of Golden Bay at the far north-west of New Zealand's South Island, Autumn Farm is ideally located between the near by Abel Tasman and Kahurangi National Parks, both of which offer outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities.

With the island's best climate, Golden Bay has a well deserved reputation as a holiday destination. Stunning scenery, beautiful beaches, pristine native bush with great walks along with kayaking, horse treks and scenic flights. The rivers are great for swimming in.

For those who want to wander beyond the compound, within 2.3 kilometres (1½ miles), there's a good selection of craft restaurants, pubs, bars, museums, art & galleries and a movie theatre - far too much on offer to ignore.
