9. Split Apple Rock, Tasman Bay
We’re back to rocks! And water. Take a trip to the Abel Tasman National Park at the tip of the South Island and you will be rewarded with yet another New Zealand natural wonder. The Split Apple Rock is a geological rock formation. Made from granite, the rock is the shape of an apple which has been cut in half.
It’s a hugely popular tourist destination and there are a number of ways you can check it out – our favourite is by kayak which you can hire in the park. You can also wade out to the rock at low tide. The split in the apple was a natural occurrence but it is not known when it happens which has created an air of mystery around the rock.
