Abel Tasman coastline

Abel Tasman coastline

This view of the Abel Tasman National Park coastline takes in Frenchmans Bay in the foreground with Boundary Bay at middle right. In the distance is Torrent Bay, where yachts are at anchor. The land in the foreground around Frenchmans Bay is privately owned – one of a number of small enclaves of private land along the coast.
