Things to See and Do
Discover New Zealand's best kept secret, the Nelson region, home to three of New Zealand's most spectacular National Parks with hiking, sea-kayaking, cruising, canyoning, biking, stand-up paddleboarding and great seafood, wine and beer on offer.
The compact geography means most activities are within 1-2 hours drive of the city. We have rental vehicles, guided coach/minivan tours and a great accessible airport if arriving by air. It's really easy to get around.
Come October the Nelson Tasman region offers even more enticing reasons to visit, discover and enjoy. To celebrate, Nelson Tasman Tourism is offering those living outside the region the chance to Win a Weekend.
