Autumn Farm

Takaka, Tasman

Autumn Farm is a one of a kind relaxing gay 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 plenty of great sites for your tent or campervan amid the tranquillity of our award-winning sub-tropical gardens.

Our guests are mostly bi-curious and queer men but we welcome all who respect our gay communal space. Autumn Farm is clothing optional and naturist friendly. We believe in living sustainably and grow most of our own fruit and vegetables. 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, palm-fringed sky and friendly people. Along with kayaking, horse treks and scenic flights, the beaches and rivers are pristine and great for swimming. We are in walking distance of some of the best and busiest river swimming spots.

  • All rooms have access to verandas
