Nelson Tasman has an enviable climate, with a sheltered coastline, and a landscape that ranges from sandy beaches to rugged mountains.

The people of Nelson are proud of their vibrant arts scene, with a year round calendar of events offering celebrations for residents and attractions for visitors.

The climate and lifestyle have historically drawn artists to this region – add the growth in wine-making over recent decades to our famed seafood and fruit, plus our galleries and boutique shops, caf├ęs and restaurants, and you go well beyond what you would normally expect to find in a provincial setting.

With a huge range of outdoor activities, sporting facilities, parks, reserves, beaches and a ski field – they can honestly say there is something here for everyone!
