About Nelson, New Zealand

Be spoilt for choice here! The Nelson region is renowned for its arts & crafts, fine orchards, vineyards and superb seafood. And that’s just to start with!

There is the outstanding Able Tasman National Park with its acclaimed walking track and sea kayaking opportunities; the lovely semi alpine village of St. Arnaud, base for the Nelson Lakes National Park and nearby ski fields.

Enjoy the massive expanse of beach at Tahunanui and watch the sun set over the Tasman Mountains.

Nelson itself is perhaps best described as a “Boutique City” with fine shopping and many excellent restaurants. Be sure to see the fantastic Wearable Arts Museum too.

The highly scenic drive over “The Hill” to the township of Takaka and the Golden Bay will definitely reward you. An excursion right out to the lighthouse on Farewell Spit may well be the highlight of your entire trip.
