2-3 hours in Nelson city - what to see

by ch3noa

If you have only 2-3 hours in nelson city, what would you visit?

I'm thinking of the following:
a) Nelson Market (it's a sat. when I bypass Nelson, so the market's open)
b) Church Hill
c) South Street precint
d) on and around Trafalgar Sq, Trafalgar St.

If you enjoy museums, Founder's Historic Park is worth a visit. There's a cafe there as well as a brewery, in case you're thirsty.

nelson is very beautiful...there are nice beaches....there is a ski field an hour and a half drive is a very safe place for children...There are amazingly beautiful rivers for swimming...they have a skateboard park....there are plenty of sports teams....all of the schools have swimming pools....there is a water park....there is a sailing club....I grew up in Nelson and had a very fun time...but as you get older it gets a little bit boring because it is very very very very small place...the people are friendly at first but I think they are a bit gets freeeeeeeeezing in winter but no snow...where are you moving from?
I moved to australia and things here are very cheap compared to is an expensive place to live....if you have an accent...all the kids at school will want to get to know you....

Travel Tips for Nelson

Kiwi Creativity with Paua Shells

by cnango

New Zealands Paua shells are from the same family as the Abolone. But the Paua shell is deeper in color and smaller in size than the Abolone.The bright iridescent blue purple and green shells are used for jewelery or ornamentation of boxes, baskets, etc. They can be found on the beaches or in the gift shops of New Zealand.

I saw a Kiwi lady wearing a cool Paua necklace and she told me her boyfriend had made it for her from a shell he found on the beach. I liked it so much I bought a polished piece of Paua shell in a gift shop,then I tied a satin cord through one of its natural holes and created the necklace pictured here. This is one of my favorite souvenirs from New Zealand and it cost less than NZ $8 to make.
