Posted by on

New website for Bronte Country when live over the weekend. Main objective was to have a fresh new clean look which is easy to navigate, make bookings, and have access to fabulous images. Take a look at and how responsive it is on your home computer, tablet, and phone.

The Great Taste Trail

Posted by on

Let me know if you’d like bicycles arranged for your ride along the Great Taste Trail whilst staying at Bronte.

Trail Highlights:

  • The trail passes beside the Waimea Estuary, home to a range of internationally significant bird species including the white heron.
  • At Tapawera, cyclists will ride along an abandoned railway corridor through the Spooner rail tunnel, New Zealand’s longest decommissioned rail tunnel and past historic tobacco drying kilns (due for completion 2016/17).
  • The route takes in Mapua, where riders can enjoy cottage industry shops, cafes and restaurants, and Motueka, with award winning wineries along the way.
  • From Mapua, riders catch the ferry across to Rabbit Island.
  • From Nelson to Brightwater and Wakefield, the route passes through farm land and vineyards, past cafes and restaurants.
