Nelson National Park, A True Paradise
When visiting Nelson National Park make sure you explore the city and the National Parks. Explore the local produce and crafts at the market in Nelson National Park.
Nelson is a gorgeous part of New Zealand with idyllic coastal spots. Cannot wait to go there. Nelson really steps things up with it’s bounty of National Parks. Nelson National Park is spectacular with mountain ranges, remote lakes and an alpine pass for good measure. Choose from a range of walks, short or long, or do a spot of trout fishing at Lake Rotorua.
Lovely Towns In Nelson (National Park)
Collingwood is the northern gateway to Kahurangi National Park and the bird sanctuary of Farewell Spit. In every direction, the environment is amazing.
Loved for its beautiful golden sand beach, the sunny town of Kaiteriteri is a launching place for trips into the Abel Tasman National Park.
Mapua township is the perfect mix of classic kiwiana, beautiful quality shops and restaurants.
Sunny Motueka grows fruit, hops and green tea for the rest of New Zealand. There’s a lively café culture and two wonderful national parks close by.
Creative relaxation in Nelson City
Scattered throughout Nelson are artists’ galleries and workshops, historic buildings and innovative cafes. Use a craft map or the Nelson Guide Book (‘Art in its Own Place’), available from the Visitor Information Centre, to create your own itinerary.
Expand your mind on the Rongoa Maori (natural medicines and bush walk). You’ll find out about traditional treatments while walking in original native forest.
When it comes to stunning scenery and sea views, you can’t go past the Abel Tasman Coast Track. Charter a yacht for a morning or several days. Sail to the Abel Tasman National Park. I am more than curious about Nelson National Park. Cannot wait to go there.
