Lonely Planet’s Regional roundup for Nelson

“Hailed as one of New Zealand’s most ‘liveable’ cities. In summer it fills up with local and international visitors, who lap up its offerings, including proximity to diverse natural attractions.”

Abel Tasman Coast Track: “This 51km, three-to-five-day track is one of the most scenic in the country, passing through native bush overlooking golden beaches lapped by gleaming azure water. Numerous bays, small and large, are like a travel brochure come to life.”

Nelson Lakes National Park: “Located at the northern end of the Southern Alps, and with a dramatic glacier-carved landscape, it’s an awe-inspiring place to get up on high.”

Takaka: “Boasting NZ’s highest concentration of yoga pants, dreadlocks and various types of dropouts, Takaka is nevertheless a largely down-to-earth town and the last ‘big’ centre before the road west ends at Farewell Spit.”
