Tasman is a locality among apple orchards on the shores of Moutere Inlet. Small stones are laid out on the inlet’s mudflats at low tide, forming ever-changing names, messages and pictures. Nearby Kina is a small beach settlement on Tasman Bay.

Meaning of place name
Rather than being in honour of Abel Tasman, the name can be traced to an orchard development project, Tasman Applelands, which took its name from Tasman Bay.
