Day by Day Tour Itinerary

Day 1

On arrival, please collect your rental car and make your way to your city hotel. The rest of today is at leisure to enjoy the local sights. Nelson’s blend of mediterranean style climate and landscape has produced ideal growing conditions for elegant whites as well as warm reds. It is also home to a thriving arts and crafts community where locals enjoy a relaxed, easy-going lifestyle.

Day 2

Free time this morning. Be sure to visit the Abel Tasman National Park, a coastal paradise that you can walk through or explore by cruise boat, sailing catamaran, water taxi or sea kayak. It is renowned for its golden, sandy beaches and the sculptured granite and marble formations that fringe the headlands. Choose from one of the many great options to explore the park or simply relax and swim in the crystal clear waters of one the many idyllic beaches.

This afternoon, enjoy a guided half day wine and arts tour. On your half day wine and arts tour, you’ll visit two award-winning wineries as well as several artisan studios including pottery, paintings, sculpture, glass, dried flowers, jewellery and more.

Day 3

The World of WearableArt™ and Classics Cars Museum is an iconic ‘must-see’ on any visit to Nelson that showcases two distinctly different passions. Here you’ll find a world class collection of classic cars alongside incredible works of wearable art from around the globe.

The Classic Car Gallery has been built up over many years and is now one of Australasia’s largest private collections. It features some of the most sought after models in classic motoring, many having been lovingly and extensively restored. Every year since 1987, a unique show has been developed and staged for the annual WearableArt Awards. Having grown from humble beginnings, the show is now a major international event and all the garments on display at the WearableArt Gallery have performed on stage.

A visit to Hoglund Glass is also highly recommended.

Day 4

Free time for some last minute sightseeing before returning your rental car and departing Nelson for your next destination.
