What We Love About Nelson

Bask in sunny Nelson and enjoy the burst of color from numerous local art and craft stores lining the streets! Being the oldest city on the South Island of New Zealand, Nelson is filled with remnants of its colonial past and historical landmarks such as the Founders Heritage Park where visitors can see an old-fashioned locomotive. Enjoy other local favorite pastimes by kayaking at Abel Tasman Beach and taking in the wondrous sights of Split Apple Rock, Medlands Beach, and Torrent Bay. If you're lucky, you might just spot adorable fur seals by the bay!
