Nelson is a lifestyle; that’s the best way to describe it. Sitting at the top north-west corner of the South Island, it’s the sunniest region in New Zealand earning the nickname ‘Sunny Nelson’ with an annual average total of over 2400 hours of sunshine. 

It captures everything from the long golden beaches to untouched forests and rugged mountains. Nelson is surrounded by mountains on three sides with Tasman Bay on the other and the region is the gateway to Abel Tasman National Park, Kahurangi National Park, Lakes Rotoiti and Rotoroa in the Nelson Lakes National Park. 

Nelson is well known for its thriving local arts and crafts scene and each year, the city hosts events popular with locals and tourists alike, such as the Nelson Arts Festival. Nelson Wine Art is made up of 25 family-run wineries from the hills to the plains. Bask in the sunshine and enjoy lunch at one of the vineyard cafés whilst selecting some exquisitely crafted wines for your cellar.
