Top of the South / Te Tau Ihu

Nelson, Marlborough, and Tasman

The Top of the South / Te Tau Ihu region stretches from the rugged West Coast, through Golden Bay, Nelson, the Marlborough Sounds to sunny Blenheim on the East Coast.

It captures three national parks and is home to one of the Southern Hemisphere’s busiest fishing ports, world-renowned vineyards and a thriving tourism industry.

The people of Te Tau Ihu, just like other regions across New Zealand, want to lift the cultural, environmental, economic and social opportunities of their mokopuna.
