Takaka Hill is a remarkable mountain on the South Island of New Zealand . It is located in the north, near the Abel Tasman National Park , about 20 km from the city of Takaka . Takaka Hill has extensive deposits of marble, in contrast to the surrounding granite hills, and that is why it is often called the "Marble Mountain". In the past, extensive mining took place here. The extracted marble was transported from the nearby Marahau Bay to the construction site of New Zealand's Parliament in Wellington. In the area of Takaka Hill, there are many caves and sink holes, for example the Ngarua Caves near the peak. The underground cave system is connected with the caves in the reserve of Waikoropupu Springs , more than 20 km away. We can admire the wonderful view of the surrounding coutry from the top of Takaka Hill. On the north, we can see D'Urvill's Island and the Abel Tasman National Park . The bays and the town of Nelson spread in the east, while the Kahurangi National Park can be seen in the west. There are other wonderful observation points in the vicinity of Takaka Hill, too: for example the Hawkes Lookout rising above a 500 m high cliff at the Riwaka Resurgence. Other attractions include the Harwood's Hole - a 176 m deep karst chimney where you will get on the Rameka Track.
