There's plenty to see and do in Golden Bay...

Tracks and Bushwalks

Exploring Golden Bay

Stroll on a spectacular surf beach... Dive into crystal clear waters clean enough to drink (Salisbury Swing Bridge near Collingwood - above).  Climb down into a huge gaping cavemouth ... Feel the spray from a postcard-perfect waterfall... Head up into alpine country and take a dip in a crystal clear lake... It's all here.
