The second day of Lift Off Abel Tasman is all about the beach. Skydivers will land on the golden sands of Kaiteriteri, the gateway to Abel Tasman National Park. There will be live music, food stalls and a craft market. We would love you to stay on and enjoy the event in the campground, cabins or apartments. Book your stay HERE
Fully-catered sunset boat cruises to Adele Island wildlife sanctuary can be booked in advance. These cruises will culminate in the bay in time to watch the world’s first balloon night glow on the beach. The festival will close with live music and dancing on one of New Zealand’s most picturesque coastlines.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Please do not drive to Kaiteriteri. There will be carparking spaces available in Motueka, Riwaka and Marahau with regular shuttle buses to Kaiteriteri. Pre-bookings will be essential.
