Motel accommodation & activities in Motueka

Motueka is a small yet attractive town, nestled minutes away from the Motueka River, in the Nelson region of New Zealand. The location takes its name from the Māori word “Motuweka” meaning “weka island”; “weka” being New Zealand’s native Woodhen.

Only a short distance from the Abel Tasman and Kahurangi National Parks and the two popular beaches- Kaiteriteri and Marahau; this South Island holiday spot is buzzing with activity throughout the year.

The town is well known for its vibrant artist community, and is home to some of New Zealand’s best potters and reggae artistes. The Motueka district is also one the country’s largest tobacco and hops growing regions.

Holiday activities include trekking, paragliding, diving, kayaking, fishing, bush walking, eco tours, art exhibitions and boutique shopping. There are accommodation options to suit all tastes and budgets in Motueka, and a fine selection of cafés and restaurants.

This delightful holiday town is a must-visit for adventure travellers, nature lovers and art enthusiasts.
