How to get there

Driving directions from Nelson

  • From Nelson, which is the main city in the north part of the South Island, travel west through the town of Motueka.
  • After crossing the Takaka Hill from Nelson, you will drive towards and into Takaka.
  • Turn right immediately past the visitors centre (don't go through Takaka).
  • Follow the road to the roundabout at the dairy factory and turn right.
  • Drive towards Pohara Beach for about ten minutes.
  • The road curves on a big right and then a big left. You will pass Motupipi School (on left), then take the next turn right at the Clifton crossroads.
  • Turn right at the next T junction at Carlyle Street.
  • Follow this road to the next T junction and turn left continuing on Clifton Road.
  • As you turn, you will see an orange "Anahata Retreat" sign. You will come to a gravel road and a sign saying Bird Road.
  • Follow the gravel road (Bird Road) up to the top of the mountain (seven kilometers).
  • You will notice a sign part way up the hill with several family names on it. This is a private driveway / road to their house. Continue on then past this drive.
  • When you are half way up you will come to two gates side-by-side. Go through the left gate (not the one going down the hill to the farm).
  • When you arrive at the top after approximately 30 minutes driving, you will see a little sign on the other side of the top gate to the right that says Abel Tasman - Wainui Hut. Go through this gate and follow the same gravel / dirt road heading a little left.
  • On your left (a hundred meters or so), you will see a row of big pine trees, a house, and some gardens. There is an “Anahata” sign on the fence to the right of the gate.
