Autumn Farm

Takaka, Tasman

Autumn Farm is a unique and relaxing queer oasis set in the beautiful Golden Bay region.

We have a wide variety of accommodation options available to suit all budgets. These include comfortable lodge rooms, individual cabins, a dormitory/backpacker style bunkhouse and a campground with some powered sites available and plenty of space for your tent or campervan amid the tranquillity of our sub-tropical gardens.

Our guests are mostly queer and bi-curious men but we welcome all who respect our gay communal home. Autumn Farm is clothing optional and naturist friendly. We believe in living sustainably and we support our local businesses by purchasing directly from farmers and producers. Many friendly native birds live in our luscious environment of amenity, fruit and palm trees.

Set minutes outside of Takaka, at the far north-west of New Zealand's South Island, we are ideally located between the nearby Abel Tasman and Kahurangi National Parks. Golden Bay and Autumn Farm have a well deserved reputation for the relaxed atmosphere and friendly people.
