If you’re thinking and dreaming about where to head off on your next journey, you’ve come to the right place.

Locals in Nelson Tasman often consider Autumn the best time of year – the weather is settled, the sea is still warm enough to swim in, there are still plenty of events and festivals on offer, and all of the outdoor summer attractions are still in full swing. There’s something particularly extraordinary about dining alfresco as the sun sets over Tasman Bay, exploring the Abel Tasman as the leaves are turning golden, skydiving on a crisp and cloudless day or sampling world class wines during harvesting season.

Nelson Tasman is surprisingly diverse and nowhere is that more evident than in the range of events our region hosts every year. Whether you choose to challenge yourself in the sporting realm, tantalise your tastebuds in the craft brewing capital of New Zealand, savour an array of delicious local cuisine, sit back and enjoy quirky performances or stroll through an illuminated utopia of light installations, Nelson Tasman has the event for you this season.
