Coast, country, community....

The Tasman community on the Ruby Coast covers the area from the Bluffs, with its stunning views across Tasman Bay, to Mariri and the lovely vistas across the Moutere Inlet to the Mt Arthur Range. It embraces the communities of Tasman Village, Kina Beach and the Kina Peninsula.

This area has traditionally produced apples and pears and has been very much a rural landscape.

In recent years we have welcomed the addition of vineyards and olive groves, along with a growing artistic community. This makes Coastal Tasman a unique place for the visitor to enjoy, with potteries, vineyards, studios, beaches, a golf course with outstanding views, cafés, and an excellent range of accommodation — with the bonus of friendly local people who will always make you very welcome.

If you would like to join the Tasman Area Community Association, please go to THIS MEMBERSHIP PAMENT LINK, fill out the form and pay your annual subscription of $5.00 per family and $2.00 per individual.
