There is something for everyone to do in Nelson – from photographing stunning scenery and admiring sea views to exploring the creative flair on show at the World of Wearable Art and Collectable Cars Museum.

When it comes to stunning scenery and sea views, you can’t go past the Abel Tasman Coast Track, which is also known as one of New Zealand’s Great Walks. The Nelson Lakes National Park is spectacular with mountain ranges, remote lakes and an alpine pass. You can also do a spot of trout fishing at Lake Rotoroa.

 

Kahurangi National Park is home to some of the country’s oldest rocks, strangest plants and rarest birds. Dolphins, penguins and seals can be spotted as you kayak, snorkel or dive around the Tonga Island Marine Reserve.

There is also the Nelson market, which is very popular with locals and tourists.
