Getting here

Guests can fly from Wellington with Golden Bay Air to Takaka Airfield where you will be provided with a courtesy transfer to Song of the Tui.

Alternatively you can fly into Nelson Airport where rental vehicles can be collected (it’s best to book your vehicle in advance). Song of the Tui is 2 hours 30 minutes drive from Nelson Airport.

The spectacular drive from Nelson to Golden Bay is an experience in itself. The highlight is the scenic drive over Takaka Hill, known as the marble mountain. There are signposted lookouts along the way and the subterranean marvels of Harwoods Hole (176 metres deep) and the Ngarua Caves shouldn’t be missed.

Song of the Tui also has a helipad available.
