Abel Tasman National Park is a beach and wilderness reserve located on New Zealand's South Island, best known for its long and lovely coastline hiking trail, the Abel Tasman Coast Track. The beach and its surrounding park are home to an abundance of native New Zealand wildlife, including fur seals, bottlenose dolphins, wild pigs, and little blue penguins. It is noted for its unique terrain, which includes sections of sandy beachfront, unmodified estuaries, and rock formations. The park's lands were originally inhabited by an indigenous Maori tribe known as Ngati-Tu-mata-kokiri, who thrived in the area until the arrival of European colonizers in the mid-19th century. Though the area was used for logging and granite mining throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it was preserved in 1942 to prevent further environmental damage.
