An art and cultural highlight. Ruby Bay is a well known artist haven with the entrance to the bay heralded with a striking steel sculpture. Well known potter Steve Fuller has his studio in the village. 9 reasons to visit Tasman Village describes,

  • Daryl Frost and his wood fired ceramics, quirky garden and welcoming gallery is a place to linger while taking in the imaginative circles of life framing the expansive ocean views.
  • Frost & Fire Art Gallery Tasman.
  • Then there is Sue Newitt – Potter with her bright New Zealand inspired palate of green adding luster to the functional form of a jug.
  • Check the Ruby Bay coast art trail self-guided map. While there is an open weekend festival in summer it is a year round trail. Telephone beforehand to avoid disappointment.


If you are short on time Tasman Village is a great day trip from Nelson city.
