    Nelson Region

    The Nelson region is in the northwest corner of the South Island. It can be divided into five distinct areas:

  • the alpine lakes and rivers around Nelson Lakes & Murchison including Nelson Lakes and Kahurangi National Parks
  • Golden Bay between Kahurangi and Abel Tasman National Parks
  • the beautiful coastline of the Abel Tasman National Park
  • the horticultural land around Mapua, Motueka,and Moutere
  • the urban centres of Nelson & Richmond

    Maori occupation dates back some 800 years, while European settlement began in 1842. Today Nelson is made up of Kiwis and increasing numbers of immigrants from the UK, Germany, America and further afield.

    The Nelson economy is based on four major industries - seafood, horticulture, tourism and forestry. Port Nelson is the biggest fishing port in Australasia. There is also a range of growth industries, including art and craft, aviation, engineering technology, and information technology.

    Nelson offers many outdoor adventure opportunities from sea kayaking to rock climbing. The region is known for its stunning scenery and its three national parks, Abel Tasman National Park, Kahurangi National Park and Nelson Lakes National Park, attract many visitors.

    Visitors include those who want to tramp or climb or take a boat on the lake, or those attracted by the important conservation work being done at Lake Rotoiti to reverse the threat to the life of the birds and the bush from predators.

    The cathedral set on a hill in the centre of the city with the Cawthron Steps leading to it is probably the most often photographed site in Nelson city.

    The shopping centre, decorated in the summer with hanging baskets of flowers, is crowded with tourists during the summer months, and the town also attracts visitors in the so-called off-season because of its pleasant climate.

    For a magnificent view walk or drive up to Britannia Heights, and from the lookout you will see across Tasman Bay to mountains and beaches and closer at hand Haulashore Island, the Nelson harbour and its sheltering Boulder Bank.
