We're excited to bring you Lift Off Abel Tasman, an action-packed weekend of fun and entertainment with two separate events in Motueka (Saturday 20th October) and Kaiteriteri (Sunday 21st October).

Watch the world’s first hot air balloon night glow on the beach at stunning Kaiteriteri, the gateway to Abel Tasman National Park, and witness a New Zealand-record skydive at Motueka Airport.

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 are excited to have Cornerstone Roots as our headline act for Balloons on the Beach 2018!

100% of the funds raised through this event will go towards future community events and supporting conservation in the Abel Tasman through Tasman Bay Guardians, Project Janszoon and Abel Tasman Birdsong Trust. By joining in the festivities, you’ll also be contributing to a better Motueka and Nelson Tasman region.

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, more information to follow.
