Lift off Abel Tasman Kaiteriteri Event – Event Access and Road Closure Information

Friday 5 October 2018

From 3.00 pm on Sunday 21 October 2018, there will be checkpoints set up at the approaches to Kaiteriteri. The marshals at these checkpoints points will be advising motorists attending the Lift Off Abel Tasman event to use the ‘park and ride’ services provided by the event organisers.

This is due to very limited parking in Kaiteriteri township. This will not restrict access for residents, or visitors to the area who are not attending the event.

From 6.00 pm till 12.00 am on Sunday 21 October 2018, the full length of Inlet road and a 300m beachfront section of Kaiteriteri-Sandy Bay Road will be closed to vehicle access.

We recommend all Kaiteriteri boat ramp users return to shore before the closure is in place, or organise to access vehicles and boat trailers via Kaiteriteri-Sandy Bay Road after 5.00 pm.

 Pedestrian and cyclist access will not be restricted in the closed section of road.

Please note this is not a Council event. For more information, including parking and the ‘park and ride’ service, please visit  or contact the local event organisers on email or call 022 103 9104.
