Sunshine, wine and beautiful waters in Nelson and Marlborough
Marlborough is a region bathed in sunshine, inviting exploration year round. Explore the forests and inlets of the Marlborough Sounds and the fields of grapevines further south. Our Marlborough and Nelson holidays also combine the thrills of swimming with dolphins and the laid-back pleasure of selecting your favourite winery from a choice of over 100.
Named after the famous British Lord Admiral, Nelson is New Zealand's second oldest city. Discover an irresistible blend of lifestyle and landscape in the northwest corner of the South Island. Nelson’s beauty extends from the northern edge of the Southern Alps across the fertile plains to a great sweep of beaches. And with more than 2,500 hours of sunshine per year, it’s New Zealand’s sunniest place.
The combination of beautiful scenery and relaxed atmosphere has proved inspirational for many. You'll find plenty of interesting art studios and galleries. Close to Nelson is the stunning Abel Tasman National Park. It’s renowned for its golden beaches, sculptured granite cliffs, and world-famous coastal track. With a mild climate, we think it’s a great place to visit at any time of the year.
