Tasman's Great Taste Cycle Trail

Tasman's Great Taste Trail starts at the Nelson Airport or the Nelson i-SITE and offers panoramic coastal and mountain views over Tasman Bay, Waimea Estuary and the Western Ranges.

The rail route section of The Great Taste trail runs from Richmond to Brightwater (10km), Brightwater to Wakefield (8km), and up the Motueka river valley to Tapawera (34km). Here at Tapawera you will need a refuelling break for a cold beer and a bite, whatever takes your fancy from our menu.

Cyclists refuel here.
