Nelson Airport Mini Guide

About Nelson Airport
Nelson Airport is situated almost in the centre of the town of Nelson which is at the very top of South Island.  It is the base of Air Nelson which is New Zealand's largest domestic airline.  Although it only handles domestic flights it is still used by over a million passengers a year and is the fourth busiest airport in New Zealand. There is one terminal with adequate facilities for visitors, including a ATM, Wi-Fi access, a private meeting/farewell room and a cafe selling drinks and snacks.

There are a number of companies operating shuttle buses from the airport to Nelson and nearby Richmond and all the main car rental companies are represented at the airport. There are no airport hotels, but the airport is so close to town you have plenty of accommodation to choose from.

About Nelson
Nelson or to give it it's full title – Nelson Tasman, has so much on offer to the visitor. It hosted the first game of rugby ever played under recognised rules in New Zealand in 1870, it is the best kite surfing venue in New Zealand, it is one of the top ten white water rafting destinations in the world, one of the world's best fly fishing destinations and one of the New Zealand's leading wellness centres, the list goes on and on and with many diverse accolades.

It also has over 350 art galleries and craft centres and is the creative arts capital of the country.  There are over 300 working artists in the region covering all aspects of art including glass blowing, ceramic artists, painters, sculptors, jewellers and writers – all of these are scattered around the area, in out of the way places wherever the artists can find artistic and creative inspiration. To enjoy a wonderful journey of discovery, hire a car and explore this region full of local talent.

Nelson Tasman is also a great conference centre. The Nelson Convention Bureau has unique venues for your conference, some with accommodation on-site, but all with the excellent range of facilities and services you would need.  The area's fantastic activity centres also provide ample opportunity for team building exercises when the day's work is done, as do the many craft breweries and wineries.
