Tasman region

Tasman District is bounded by Tasman Bay and Golden Bay on its seaward side and the Victoria Range and Spenser Mountains in the south. Tasman includes three national parks:  Abel Tasman National Park, Nelson Lakes National Park and Kahurangi National Park. The region is home to a wide variety of landscapes from the sand dunes of Farewell Spit to extensive cave networks around Mount Owen and Mount Arthur and has some of the clearest water ever measured within Blue Lake and Te Waikoropupū Springs.

The Tasman District Council is a unitary authority which combines the functions of both a city council and a regional council.

Tasman has a population of 54,800 people (June 2019).
