Nelson Activities

Abel Tasman National Park

The Abel Tasman Coastal Track offers coastal walking at its very best. Enjoy New Zealand's easiest, safest, sunniest and most popular Great Walk.

Regular bus service departs from Nelson and Motueka, and water taxis and cruise boats operate daily.

Golden beaches, rocky outcrops, kayaking. Walk the coastal tracks all year, along coastline to Tonga Marine Reserve, where you can swim with the seals, who play on the rocks.

Nelson and Golden Bay is famous for its pottery given the quality of its local clay, and glass blowing furniture, woodcarving, paintings, candle making and other crafts flourish in this artist's paradise. Take time out to leisurely peruse the quaint country studios or visit the colourful galleries and lively markets in Nelson itself.

Wine trailing is a popular pastime, and what better way to end a superb day than to dine at one of the several harbourside restaurants as the sun sinks gracefully behind the hills of the Abel Tasman National Park.
