→ Multi-day walks in the Park : - Start from either Marahau or Wainui (in Golden Bay). Choose to stay in a tent (you can hire one from here) or in the DOC huts. The park is beautiful but if you have the time we highly recommend that you spend an extra night and see the Northern part.
→ Nelson's Saturday Market : - There is good quality hand made goods plus lots of fruit, veggie and different foods. There is a Sunday morning market, which mainly comprises of second hand goods. If you are after clothes or a book you are bound to get a bargain here.
→ Bone Carving : - A one-day workshop where you choose the design you want to make and then get help to create your masterpiece. Highly recommended by all.
