Abel Tasman, Kahurangi and Nelson Lakes National Parks

Tramping, walking, hiking in New Zealand's great outdoors

The Nelson and Tasman regions are two of the most beautiful in New Zealand.

Located at the top of the South Island this area offers beautiful golden beaches, fantastic walking tracks which range from coastal walks in the Abel Tasman to alpine walks in the Kahurangi and Nelson Lakes national parks.

The alpine delights of St Arnaud are only 50 minutes away, so enjoy the snow in the winter and beautiful walking and hiking in the summer - you may even hear kiwis calling.

Those wanting more activity may want to throw themselves out of a plane, go up in a microlight, try horse riding, take a cruise, go bird spotting, scuba dive in a marine reserve…

There are many good trout fishing rivers in the area as well as sea fishing too.

And we're only 20 minutes from the central business district of Nelson.

Whatever your interests you'll find something in this region to interest you and you'll wish you could stay longer.

Artisans, Crafts, Vineyards, Wine Tastings, Museums…

Try wine tasting at a Nelson or Tasman vineyard

For those wanting culture there are museums, vineyards, wine tastings and many artisans and crafts people to visit.

If you're here over a weekend visit the Nelson Market on Saturday morning or wander out to the Motueka Market on Sunday.

Brightwater offers you the ideal location to enjoy the beautiful Nelson and Tasman regions from.
