Abel Tasman National Park is Top End of South Island

From craft breweries to acclaimed wineries, from the most sunshine hours to stunning sunsets, from creative arts to the great outdoors, one could totally be caught up in the rapture in the Nelson region.

Nelson has great accommodation and cafes not to mention amazing attractions and activities – from fly fishing to kite surfing, from mountain biking to whitewater rafting, from track tramping to a great arts scene.

There’s nowhere else in the world where you’ll find, within a short distance, three spectacular New Zealand national parks, glistening golden sand beaches and turquoise crystal clear waters, alongside alpine meadows and snowy mountain ranges.

Nelson is only a 30 minute flight from Wellington, 45 minutes from Christchurch, 80 minutes from Auckland, and 2 hours drive from the Picton Ferry.
