Nelson is a port city on South Island NZ (Tasman Bay's eastern shores), with population around 50,000.

Port Nelson (New Zealand) cruise port

  • The town is the oldest on South Island and New Zealand's 2nd-oldest (after Russel) established in 1841 and granted city status in 1858.
  • Port Nelson is a maritime gateway for the NZ regions Nelson, Marlborough and Tasman, as well as main industrial hub. In 1994 was suggested building a deep-water port with 1-kme-long dock (wharf) extending from Boulder Bank into Tasman Bay. The project was for allowing world's largest ships to berth and manoeuvre with ease. The so called "Port Kakariki" project (USD 97 million) planned to make nelson NZ hub for West Coast coal shipping to Asia, as well as main cargo terminal for handling logs barged from Mapua across Tasman Bay.
  • Unlike many NZ cities, Nelson has many preserved Victorian-style buildings. The South Street area is designated heritage site. The city has beautiful public parks and reserves (Grampians is one of the largest), many bars and restaurants, and is also popular as shopping destination and for local arts and crafts. Annually are held the Nelson Arts Festival and the Wearable Art Awards.
