|While we have been enjoining an incredibly sunny summer, you will have heard the news about the fires in the Nelson Tasman region. This is devastating for those living close to the affected areas, but we would like to reassure you that the majority of our tourism businesses are operating as usual. If you have specific concerns, the best place to go for detailed updates is the Nelson Tasman Civil Defence website.
The Abel Tasman National Park is NOT impacted by the fire at all and all tourism businesses in the park are operating as usual. Golden Bay and Murchison are also unaffected by the fires.

How will this effect your clients?
Our thoughts are with families whose properties are being impacted by the fires. There is an incredible crew of people working around the clock to minimise further damage. We are confident that this situation will soon be behind us and we continue to welcome all visitors to the region.
