The Awaroa beach in the South Island of New Zealand has been bought for 2.3 million NZD via crowdfunding. The beautiful beach is part of the Abel Tasman National Park. This initiative was started by Duane Major and Adam Gardner after former owner businessman Michael Spackman wished to sell it off. In order to keep the beach from falling into private hands the project was started and it reached the target within 4 weeks.

New Zealand government also contributed to the project. The beach will now be part of a national park and it will also involve the local Maori groups who had staked claim to the beach. The beach will definitely become major tourist attraction in coming years.
