This page contains information and links about Takaka, New Zealand.

Takaka is the largest urban settlement in Golden Bay. Over the years it has attracted both local and overseas holiday makers as well as permanent residents seeking an alternative lifestyle. Today, the area plays a major role in the District's dairying industry.

A significant part of the wider Golden Bay land ownership consists of non-resident owners who primarily come to Golden Bay during the peak holiday season. This non-resident population, in addition to tourist visitors, also depend on Takaka for key service provision over the holiday season.
