About the Nelson Region
Situated at the top of the South Island, the Nelson Region boasts some of the best weather, beaches, seafood and outdoor pursuits in the country. From local scallops and golden beaches, to sky-diving and tramping, there's something for everyone.
Nelson is emerging as the craft brewing captial of New Zealand, and Abel Tasman was recently voted by kiwis as the #1 destination "must do's" for kiwis.
Nelson boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. Close to the city is Tahunanui - a shallow swimming beach, especially good for children. A little further afield try Kaiteriteri, Golden Bay, or Collingwood - golden, sunny and serene. Simply perfect.
