Mini Guide for Nelson Airport

Nelson Airport takes you, literally, to the centre of New Zealand, for its midpoint is settled on a hill outside the City. There is a lot to see and do in this beautiful City, located on the Northeast coast of South Island. To get around freely and explore the heartlands and beyond, Car Hire is a good option.  If you have booked a Rhino hire car you can collect your vehicle from the desks near the main Airport building entrance/ exit.

The area has abundant National Parks and Lakes, including the Abel Tasman National Park. Take your Hire Car for the breath-taking drive along the coastal section of the park. In town you can visit the Miyazu Japanese Garden, a tribute to its twin city or swim on Tahunanui Beach, considered one of the most family friendly in New Zealand.
