Travel Tips for Nelson

Historical Home in Nelson

by cnango

Nelson has a lot of wonderful historical homes. This Victorian home with wood siding and gingerbread trim, is over 100 yrs old. It is similar to the "painted ladies" of San Francisco or Nelsons Sister City Eureka in California I love to discover these historical treasures in NZ .The owners must have a real appreciation for this historical home because it has been lovingly restored.

In September 2002 Eureka and Nelson Mayors together signed a "Friendship Agreement" creating the bond. Both of these charming cities are located in Pristine Bays with fishing and timber having been their main economic industries. They are also known for being charming bohemian towns with beautiful Victorian architecture. Many ex- Hippies,local artists and crafts people choose to live and do business in these sister cities. Because of their natural beauty, rich history and bohemian charm, the tourism business is booming in both Nelson and Eureka.

Te waikoropupu (PUPU) Springs

by balhannah

Located 7kms from Takaka.

The Springs are the largest freshwater and coldest springs in the Southern Hemisphere.
They contain the clearest water that you could see anywhere, so beautiful! To the Maori"s, this area is a treasure and a place held in high spiritual and cultural regard. In Maori tradition, the springs hold the purest water and provide water for healing. In the past, the Springs were used for Ceremonial blessings at times of births and deaths. A platform sits over the water a bit, so that you can see the springs under water.

Founders Historic Park

by wkcsmt

"Old St Peter's Chapel"

St Peter’s-by-the-Strand, named for its location on the shores of the Haven, served the Anglicans of Atawhai from 1874 - 1983 when it was moved to Founders. It now has a nuns’ stall that came from the Nelson Convent, new stained glass windows and other artefacts from old Nelson churches.

When the church was built it was described as ‘quite an ornament for the passing traveller to behold with its belfry and three gilded crosses’. The original belfry was demolished as unsafe in 1941, but is now rebuilt, complete with the clock that used to tick off the hours at Nelson College until the 1929 Murchison Earthquake tumbled the clock tower.

St Peter’s has a lovely atmosphere and makes a very special setting for weddings or other services.

Another view of St Peter's with Bank of New South Wales on the right...

Family photo time... In the background, there is an aeroplane on display, a miniature windmill, a flying fox play area...
