Motueka’s township is home to a thriving business community.

A sun-drenched and vibrant town, it’s the second-largest in the Tasman District and lies just 33kms from Richmond.

As the gateway town to the renowned Abel Tasman National Park and stunning Golden Bay, breath-taking golden sand beaches await.

Combine these with the Ngarua Limestone Caves and the trout-filled Motueka River and you have one of the most scenic destinations in New Zealand, with the region’s primary source of income horticulture and tourism.

Motueka’s many recreational opportunities and fabulous climate have made it a favourite place for Kiwis to live and play across generations, and by 2043 those residing here aged over 65 years is projected to increase from 27% to 39%.
