This is the usual driving tour including links to pages for the bigger attractions (only Nelson at present), and a narrative here for the smaller ones (not really any). It connects from Touring Marlborough east of Nelson and runs down to Murchison, where it connects with Touring West Coast.
Abel Tasman National Park
I visited Abel Tasman National Parkon a morning following a violent storm: it was still almost impossible to get out of the car, and everything seemed to have been destroyed overnight. It seemed a nice place, though.
The tour connects through Murchison to Touring West Coast.
