The twin regions of Nelson & Marlborough have a lot to offer – from the stunning waterways of the Marlborough Sounds, to the vineyards and wineries of Renwick, and the sundrenched beaches of Abel Tasman National Park. A haven for artisans, Nelson is the art and craft capital of New Zealand. Also home to two stunning National Parks and countless beaches, it’s an outdoor paradise. Marlborough is renowned as one of New Zealand’s top wine growing areas – with long, languid summers and rolling hills. The Marlborough Sounds are also a water sports playground and popular holiday destination.
