Holiday in Nelson, NZ

Planning a holiday to New Zealand is something that alot of people would love to do, but not very many get the chance!

New Zealand is a place that lots would like to see, but tends to be put on the wishlist behind bigger destinations like Europe. Unless your really seasoned as a traveler or have a dedicated reason to visit, its likely you might pass this beautiful country by!

New Zealand can be found west of Aussie, in the Pacific ocean. It is a lonely place, and for millions of years has been down here, earning NZ its own and very distinct and beautiful flora and fauna as well as geographical attributes.

Of the places to be sure to visit, there are some standouts, however this article focuses on staying in beautiful Nelson, at the top of the South Island.

Nelson throws up so many vast attractions, however, each good holiday starts with a place to stay. In the district itself, are lots of smaller suburbs that would be ideal places to base your stay at.

Starting with Nelson City itself, you are in the main CBD area that offers the ideal hub from which to explore. This stunner has the most services, and offers a sparkling waterfront to dine or party on. Try here for some nelson accommocation options.

Following on, is Tahuna, around 10 mins from the city itself. Tahunanui or Tahuna for short, is a fab place to stay, either in the many motels or at the camp ground, with the lovely swimming beach just opposite.

For those who wish to expand their accommodation in nelson experience, and stay further afield, Golden Bay offers many options. There is boutique motels and hotels, homestays and of late, very popular options include ‘bach’ rentals. These are holiday houses that can be rented off the landlords for a charge. Usually amazingly cheaply!

What ever you decide to do, be sure to book well in advance of the 2011 Rugby World Cup dates, as the nelson motel market is set to be booked out very early!
