Nelson Tours

Nelson, a pocket paradise nestled in the top northwest corner of the South Island. The entire area is said to resemble the prow of the waka (canoe) of Maui, an important figure in Maori mythology, and was known by the Maori as Te Tau Ihu o Te Waka a Maui (the tip of the nose of the canoe of Maui).

Nelson is an area of great beauty lying between the northern edge of the Southern Alps and a great sweep of beaches. The trademarks are stunning scenery and a diverse culture that has blossomed in this area of rich resources and easy climate.

You are never short of something to do in the Nelson region and you are ensured of encountering many original characters amongst a vital network of artists and craftspeople, Maori marae, farm and orchard settlements, alternative communities and adventurers - friendly folk happy to share their good life with you.

Key Attractions :

Suter Art Gallery
The Suter Art Gallery in the Queens Gardens, 208 Bridge Street, houses a large permanent art collection noted for works by 19th century artists such as Gully, Lindauer and Van der Velden; and a growing contemporary art collection including landscapes by Sir Toss Woollaston. The exhibition programme features a wide variety of work by significant local and national artists. The gallery includes a craft shop, cinema and restaurant.

Broadgreen House
In Nayland Road, Stoke, Broadgreen House is a stately two-storied, cob house built about 1855. The 11 rooms of Broadgreen, including the cellar, have been restored and furnished to recapture the atmosphere of a family home of the mid-1850's. Don't miss the Samuels Rose Garden in the grounds.

Melrose House
Melrose House, in Brougham Street, is one of the last surviving "grand" homes of Nelson. It was designed by Mr J Scotland and built for Mr Charles Fowell Willett Watts in about 1876. Melrose is now used in many ways by numerous groups and organisations in the community, as well as for private social functions.

The other attractions included Takaka Hill, the dairying town of Takaka picturesque at all times of year, the district has a large number of exotic trees which are particularly colourful in autumn. Motueka , New Zealand's only commercial plantations of hops and tobacco. Nelson's fresh seafood and Takaka Hill Waikoropupu Springs are other important attractions.

Shopping :Shop till you drop!
The main shopping areas in Nelson are mostly contained within the central blocks of the urban area. A varied range of goods are available, from the commonplace through to the unusual. Open-air markets feature booths selling anything from craft to cabbages. The main markets are held on Saturday and Sunday 8am-1pm in Montgomery Square in Nelson, and in Motueka and Golden Bay on Sundays. Other small markets are held at different times throughout the region and are generally advertised in Visitor Information Centres and in local newspapers.

Nelson – An Incredible Journey :
New Zealanders flock to Nelson because it has some of the South Island's best beaches and sunniest weather. As a result, this town of 43,000 offers a number of nice hotels and restaurants.
