Nestled at the northern end of New Zealand's South Island, Nelson is a gem. With its rich cultural heritage, stunning landscapes, and vibrant community, it's a city that captures hearts.

Weather and Best Time to Visit

Be assured, British rain lovers, you’re heading towards the sunniest region in New Zealand. With a Mediterranean-style climate, Nelson is warm and dry during the British winter, which makes the perfect getaway from chilly UK. Fancy a summer trip instead? Nelson offers the clearest blue winter skies you could imagine, just remember to pack a woolly jumper!

Driving in Nelson

Get set, adventurers! With your driving wheel on the right, unlike in Britain, driving in New Zealand can be an experience itself. But worry not. With a little alertness, driving on the left side of the road will soon be second nature. Just remember, the driver seat should always be in the middle of the road. Additionally, watch your speed, as limits are typically lower than in the UK.

Car Rental Tips

When renting a car, book in advance to secure the best deals. Compact cars are most suitable for solo or couple travellers, while larger cars or SUVs are ideal for families. Automatic cars are the norm here - good news for those used to manual operation, you’re in for a more relaxed driving experience!

Mobility and Parking

With plenty of parking spaces around, parking in Nelson usually comes at no cost but time-limited. Pay heed to the signs or risk a ticket. Looking for day-long convenience? There are several 'pay and display' areas throughout the city.

Nelson’s Attractions

Oh, where should we start? Perhaps, a visit to the World of WearableArt & Classic Car Museum, or a stroll through the Queen's Gardens. Also, not to miss is the Nelson Saturday Market, a local favourite for fresh produce and handcrafted items.

Exploring the Greater Nelson Region

Ready for more exploration? Embark upon a scenic drive to the neighbouring cities of Richmond and Mapua, or experience the stunning walking trails of Nelson Lakes National Park. For the beach buffs, Tahunanui Beach and Kaiteriteri Beach never disappoint!
