Our next stop was Nelson. Nelson is a small city of 53,500 at the top of the South Island. It is said to be the sunniest city in all of NZ!
It wasn’t quite sunny when we arrived. It’s certainly a very green city with the bush right behind the suburban streets.
Since the city was established back in 1841, it has a mix of modern and historical buildings in the town centre.
I liked these old weatherboard houses, very typical of New Zealand because of the availability of good building timbers in the past. Reminds me of the old Queenslanders.
