Centre of New Zealand

If you are in Nelson and look for recreation, let's have a walk to Nelson Botanical Hill, which is well known as Centre of New Zealand. It will take you up to an hour to reach the Centre of NZ. When you are there, don't forget to enjoy the panoramic views, take some pictures and take some deep breaths as well. I'm sure you'll be amazed by the fresh air surrounded. If you are curious about why the place was being named as 'The Centre of New Zealand', then you may refer to this website

WOW (World of Wearable Art & Classic Car Museum)

Nelson is well-known for its ingenuity in arts and crafts.

Of course, Nelson is not merely about beach. There are many other great places worth your visits and one of them is the WOW - World of Wearable Art & Classic Cars Museum. The admission to this museum is not free, my friends and I paid $18 each for the visit during one weekend.

Wearable Art Gallery and Classic Car Gallery are the highlights of the museum. Besides, there’re a shop, art gallery and cafĂ© for patrons to visit. No admission fee charged if you merely visit these 3 parts without entering both main galleries.
Sorry that no photos are allowed to be taken from the Wearable Art Gallery, so I have nothing to show. Notwithstanding, I took very many photos from the Classic Car Gallery. There're over 50 classic motorbikes and cars displayed in the museum, it's really a car gallery like no other!

Anyway, I think I have uploaded quite a few photos here. So, even if you don't feel like spend money to visit the museum, at least you still have explored something from here :)

WOW Museum
Location: 95 Quarantine Road, Annesbrook, Nelson, NZ

WOW opens every day (except Christmas) from 10am – 5pm.

It's approximately 10 minute drive from Nelson City en-route to Abel Tasman National Park and 2 minutes from Nelson Airport. We went there by one of my friend's car. However, there's public bus service available.

Beautiful Beach Life (Part II)

Looking back at these photos, it was really nice when we stayed near to the beach. We were so relax and enjoyed our time at the beach, even though sometimes just had a short walk on weekends. I do miss the moment.
