Although you don’t need to be the creative type to enjoy Nelson, it is a magnet for creativity. A place rich in inspiration and heritage, over 350 craftspeople and working artists call Nelson home. It’s a town bustling with galleries, studios and workshops, offering you the opportunity to take home a truly unique piece of Kiwi art or craft. Nelson is also home of Abel Tasman National Park – no doubt an inspiration for many of the resident artists! Explore two of the Great Walks of NZ – The Heaphy Track (the longest of the Great Walks) and the Abel Tasman Experience. Golden beaches, crystal clear waters and an abundance of wildlife provide the canvas for your great outdoors getaway. Head west and you’ll find long lunches, vineyards and cellar doors, home to a glass of inspiration of a different kind!
