Marlborough and Nelson

The world-famous, sunny Marlborough wine region sits on the northern tip of the South Island where superb vineyards abound - perfect for a leisurely day of wine tasting. The Marborough Sauvignon Blancs are not to be missed. Nelson also provides a creative hub of artists and craft shops waiting to be discovered.

New Zealand has long been famed for its stunning, unspoiled landscape and is a country of contrasts with dense, native forest and spectacular coastline, showcased to maximum effect here with the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park.

Nearby Nelson is a city filled to the brim with galleries showcasing the very best of New Zealand's art. Prowl the lanes between the hundreds of stalls at the markets to find some unique pieces to take home with you.
