Climate and lifestyle are two of the major factors for people choosing to live and work in the Tasman District

Our vision for the Tasman District is to be a thriving, vibrant, interactive community where people enjoy a wonderful lifestyle and the natural environment is well cared for. We want to live in a place where we all live and work sustainably, with employment opportunities for everyone, and where residents and visitors can enjoy the stunning natural beauty of our District.

If you love the sunshine and the great outdoors, the Tasman District provides plenty of opportunity for you. From tramping, mountaineering, camping and hunting, through to horse trekking, boating and fishing, you name it, it can be done in Tasman.

With three national parks – Abel Tasman, Kahurangi and Nelson Lakes, and Tasman's Great Taste Trail on your doorstep, there’s plenty of opportunity to explore the best parts of the region.

If the outdoors aren’t for you, you can sit back and relax at one of the many great restaurants, wineries, cafes, breweries and bars in the region.
