With three National Parks within 90 minutes of the city, the Nelson Tasman region boasts an ever-changing landscape: from alpine lakes and raging rivers, to wide, sandy coastlines. It’s a place that provides a backdrop of stunning scenery and plenty of leisurely adventure, both on and off the water.
A rich and fertile countryside provides deliciously fresh produce, while grapes and hops are handcrafted into fine wines and thirst-quenching brews. As you pick your path through rolling hills and along the golden coasts, take time to visit the gourmet food producers, boutique wineries and breweries and the studios of the talented artistic community that thrives here.
With the largest fishing port in Australasia, Nelson Tasman is also the perfect place to indulge in New Zealand seafood. Fresh fish, scallops, clams and mussels are among the many delicacies to feature on menus throughout the area.
