Nelson, also known as “Whakatu” in Māori, is a city situated on the eastern side of Tasman Bay. With a rich history dating back to its establishment in 1841, Nelson is considered the oldest city in the South Island and the second-oldest settled city in New Zealand. The city, with a population of approximately 50,000 people, offers a charming blend of heritage, natural beauty, and a vibrant arts and crafts scene.
Nelson boasts a temperate oceanic climate characterized by mild winters and warm summers. The region enjoys one of the sunniest climates in New Zealand, earning the nickname “Sunny Nelson” with over 2,400 hours of sunshine annually. Its highly marine geography results in evenly distributed rainfall throughout the year and fewer frosts compared to other areas.
The economy of Nelson, along with the neighboring Tasman District, thrives on five key industries: seafood, horticulture, forestry, farming, and tourism. Port Nelson, the largest fishing port in Australasia, plays a significant role in the region’s economy. Nelson is also home to growing industries such as art and craft, aviation, engineering technology, and information technology. In terms of GDP growth, the region ranks sixth among major New Zealand centers.
