With part of the East Coast road (SH 1) closed for the 2016/17 summer we've developed maps to show you all the other ways to get around the top of the South Island. There are lots of new places to discover and adventures to be had. Before and after your holiday in Nelson, Abel Tasman National Park and Golden Bay, you can enjoy the Nelson Lakes National Park, Lewis Pass and then head south on the West Coast. Along the way, you will find lots of authentic kiwi experiences to enjoy.
Nelson is also well connected by air with other parts of New Zealand.
All Five Individual Maps with sightseeing highlights, plus Summary Map.
