Land next to 'New Zealand's beach' for sale

A stretch of land next to what has been dubbed "New Zealand's beach" is up for sale and you could buy it. 

The undeveloped four hectare section beside Awaroa Beach in the middle of Abel Tasman National Park is up for grabs and extends onto the beach itself.

In 2016, a crowdfunding campaign led by Canterbury brothers-in-law Adam Gard'ner and Duane Major captured the nation's imagination and raised $2.28 million to buy the picturesque Awaroa Beach. 

Listing agent Kylie Taikato-Jones of Sotheby's International Realty New Zealand told Stuff properties within Abel Tasman rarely came up for sale. 

"[They] are understandably treasured by generations of families and the close-knit community who return time and again for holidays and celebrations," she says. 

While it was still early days Ms Taikato-Jones says there has been "impressive" interest.

On the Sotheby's website, the property's rateable value is $860,000 and tenders must be registered by November 2. 

Sometimes described as New Zealand's best kept secret, the isolated land in Abel Tasman has no road access and can only be reached by boat, plane or on foot.
