    If you are looking for somewhere to stay along the Nelson-Marlborough leg of the Te Araroa trail or you have a backyard or a room you are happy to let someone stay in, post a comment here!


    Hey, I’m going to be in Picton tonight and tomorrow night (1/16 and 1/17), does anyone have any floorspace for a solo female hiker? Thanks a bunch!

    Hello there,
    we are situated in Aniseed Valley close to the Hackett Carpark
    ( Nelson entrance onto the trail)
    and can offer accommodation, space to pitch a tent, hot shower and flush loo & laundry.
    Pick up service from either Airport or the Hackett.

    Or a postal address to send supplies too.

    Probably best to contact via email:

    T. 03-5440249 or 0210763763

    Warm regards,



    We live in Tahunanui, and can potentially provide accommodation for a hiker and maybe pick up/drop off at trail head. We are Canadian travellers based in Nelson for a while and happy to swap stories over a beer and maybe even cook you dinner! Best to contact me via email at

    Hi Vanessa (your email didn’t work)

    I am walking the TA for charity next year…..if you wish to you can check out our Facebook page “Creative Trail Feb 2019” and Instagram #creative_hiker

    Found your details on the Trail Angel site, would love to come and pitch my tent at yours, approx arrival is 21/3/19 all things going to plan.

    Would also really appreciate being able to send a resupply box as well if that is cool?

    Also could we arrange for pick up at the Hackett carpark (could you please advise the fee for this pickup service?)

    I look forward to your response
