Nelson, New Zealand
I started my South Island trip in Nelson on August 15th. I stayed here for two weeks doing help exchange. I previously posted World of Wearable Art and Classic Museum and my Abel Tasman Full-day Trip.
I’d say that they are my top two favorites here. But aside from that, I also loved The Centre of New Zealand. It was so only 15 minutes easy walk to the top and the view was just amazing and serene.
There’s Founders Heritage Park which was kind of a throw back. Plenty of interesting little museums. There’s NZD 7 entrance fee for tourists.
The Queens Garden was also nice but since I came during the winter, still not much flowers.
Who would want to miss the Saturday market in Nelson? They’ve got pretty cool stuff and yummy food.
The Nelson Provincial Museum is tiny but worth visiting.
Tahunanui Beach is my 3rd favorite with another beautiful relaxing views!
And don’t forget to visit Penguino in town if you’re an ice cream lover like me.
And here’s a beautiful view from one of the lookouts.
It was mostly sunny during my stay in Nelson and of course this place is just one of the “a-must-visit” in New Zealand.

I am a woman consumed by wanderlust. I am outgoing but I also love to spend time alone, live for “being yourself”. I love new situations and to meet new people.
