Regram from @tpltraveled “This past weekend @jillmillerphoto and I ticked the last box of our 2.5 year South Island expedition - Golden Bay. We have now seen all corners of the island, and many many places in between. Golden Bay is not an easy place to get to! And thank goodness that this is the case or it wouldn't be such a gem. It's so diverse up there, with calm beaches to the east near the Abel Tasman, contrasted by rugged beaches complete with dunes and insane rock formations to the west.” #extraordinary #nelsontasman #southisland #newzealand #nzmustdo #newzealandvacations #purenewzealand #gottalovenz #thepathlesstravelled #goldenbay #farewellspit #hikingnz
When hiking in the Kahurangi National Park, you’ll find this spectacular 65 metre waterfall shortly after reaching the Boulder Lake Hut. This waterfall feeds the Boulder River and is best viewed from a vantage point located to the west of the dam wall, which was built by gold miners across the lake outlet stream to sluice gold claims on the Quartz Range goldfields.

The night sky over Cable Bay and Pepin Island is looking #extraordinary in this image taken by @Mack_photography_nz. Have you ever viewed the bay from this vantage point on Sentinel Hill? The Cable Bay walk links up with The Glen, near Nelson and takes about 3 1/2 hours one way. The hilly, coastal track passes through a mix of pasture, pine forest and native forest and provides impressive views along the way. #nelsontasman #cablebay #astroshoot #nightsky #starrynight #shootingstar #southisland #newzealand #nzmustdo #purenewzealand #newzealandvacations #hikingnz #shortwalksnz
Throwback to this time last week when we were strolling through the extraordinary Light Nelson event, with a collection of images taken by Nelson Tasman locals and visitors.

If you have an image from the event (or just in general) you'd like to share with us, you can do so using #nelsontasman or tagging @ilovenelsontasman. .

Regram from @barekiwi of his snowy adventure hiking up Mount Robert in the Nelson Lakes National Park “Why hello winter, you’re looking goooood. ❄️ ⛄️” #extraordinary #nelsontasman #nelsonlakes #nelsonlakesnationalpark #mountarthur #southisland #newzealand #winterhikes #hikingnz #snow #wintervibes #nzwinter2018 #nzmustdo #gottalovenz #newzealandvacations #purenewzealand
What’s your ideal hiking scene? Native bush, sandy beaches, snowy mountains, rugged coastline, the vast outback? We have it all here in #nelsontasman.

It might be Winter, but that doesn’t mean the fun stops in Nelson Tasman. You’ll still find locals and visitors running wild on the beaches, paddle-boarding on the calm waters of Tasman Bay, cycling along the waterfront, attending sporting events or simply immersing themselves in any of our diverse range of indoor and outdoor experiences our region has to offer. We’re loving this photo by @jennymarieimagery of her daughters mid winter excitement at Tahunanui Beach #extraordinary #nelsontasman #southisland #newzealand #nelsonnz #tahunanuibeach #wintervibes #nzwinter2018 #winterbeach #funinthesun #gottalovenz #purenewzealand #newzealandvacations #nzmustdo #wintersunshine
It might be a little chilly for us to dive into the ocean at this time of year, but these little chicks in the Abel Tasman don’t seem to mind!

Winter in Nelson Tasman is truly extraordinary, with calm waters, blue skies, crisp morning air and snow capped mountains, but even more so when you get to wake up to a snowy paradise like this. Regram from @kimmy_hobson from her winter hike in Kahurangi National Park “Go somewhere where there are no other people? Sure, sounds like paradise 🐾🌎” #extraordinary #nelsontasman #nelsonnz #kahurangi #kahuranginationalpark #nzmustdo #gottalovenz #hikingnz #winterhikesnz #wintervibes #nzwinter2018
Winter has arrived and @rainbowskiarea is opening this weekend! Here’s some #extraordinary drone footage from early last season to get you pumped for what’s to come on the slopes in the coming weeks. Are you a skier, a snowboarder, or a sledder? Or, a “I’m just gonna watch from the cafe”-er? #nelsontasman #southisland #newzealand #nzmustdo #gottalovenz #newzealandvacations #newzealandadventures #rainbowskiarea #rainbowskifield #hittheslopes #wintervibes #nzwinter2018 #skiingnz #snowboardingnz #snow
By now, we're sure you've heard about the best sweets in town. Pumping out almost 500 donuts a day these guys over at @thesmokingbarrelnz are making history in the donut market. Customers are dreaming far and wide of their delightful gems served right here in Motueka... and we must admit, we’re guilty of a few too many visits 😉 @88coolestkid @motueka_nz #extraordinary #nelsontasman #motueka #southisland #newzealand #nzmustdo #gottalovenz #donuts #nzcuisine #lovemotueka #goodbyediet #hellodelicious
The countdown is on with just one more day to go until the extraordinary @lightnelsonevent  begins. We’re looking forward to strolling through an incredible utopia of light installations and celebrating the artistic talent of those in our region, and from afar, who have come together to make this event possible. Queens Gardens, Albion Square & NMIT campus, 6th-10th July, from 5.30-9.30pm. We’ll see you there!
