The Parish of Golden Bay is situated on the north western tip of the South Island of New Zealand and is part of the Tasman District within the Nelson Diocese.
Around two hours drive west from Nelson City, the road crosses the Takaka hill which gives panoramic views of both Tasman Bay and the Takaka Valley. It is a unique area, being bounded by mountains, two national parks (Abel Tasman and Kahurangi) and the Tasman Sea.
Golden Bay is blessed with a temperate climate and provides employment in the service industries, farming, building and tourism. The constant stream of visitors triples the population during the summer period. It is a thriving community with many cultures and beliefs; an exciting and challenging mission for our Church.
