Nelson Tasman at the North-West corner of the South Island of New Zealand combines small city charm with big city style. A sophisticated place with a quirky touch, the region is home to passionate people fueled by fresh food, fine wine, sunshine, and a light sea breeze.
It’s here that Kiwis first played rugby, where the world’s most famous ring was made and the World of WearableArt was born. You’ll find some of the clearest water ever measured, the country’s most popular national park hiking track, fine aromatic wines, and the Centre of New Zealand.
Countless walkways, mountain bike trails, kayaking, sailing, quad biking and golf are all accessible just moments from the city, or in the depths of the wider region’s stunning landscape. Local characters are waiting to take you on a path of discovery in the region’s three national parks and other natural wonders, or cut your own track through this special part of New Zealand.
