Nelson is a vibrant city with a rich cultural and historical heritage and you can find a variety of attractions tight here in the city. At Founders Heritage Park you can take a walk through Nelson's past and in the adjacent japanese garden you can discover Nelson's ties to our sister city Miyazu. It's particular pretty during the cherry blossom time around mid-end September.

Along the waterfront you'll have great views of the harbour, learn something about the first settlers coming to the region by ship and finde several eateries with seaview to have lunch or dinner.

If you've been out all day and need a little green oasis in the middle of town, make sure to stop by at the Queens Gardens and have a picnic.
