Nelson - Boulder Bank

Situated in the north-west corner of the South Island, the Nelson region is surrounded by sheltering mountain ranges giving it a mediterranean-type climate.

The Nelson region is known for its year-round sunshine, golden beaches, national parks, boutique wineries, micro breweries and a large creative community of working artists.

The Nelson Lakes National Park is set amidst the mountains and glaciated valleys south of Nelson city and features beech forests and the beautiful jewel-like lakes, Rotoiti and Rotoroa. Kahurangi, New Zealand's second-largest national park, comprises 450,000 hectares of mostly upland wilderness, with magnificent three to four-day hiking trails.
