Our Nelson Lifestyle

Nelson Tasman is a beautiful place to live, work and play

Our region is highly connected both locally and globally, a place of surprising diversity, vibrant arts and artisans, with clever city and rural businesses, all thriving amongst stunning natural landscapes. We sometimes forget how easy it is to live and visit here compared to other places.

Work-life balance

At Nelson City Council, we support flexible working, wherever practical, to allow our people to make the most of the incredible lifestyle Nelson Tasman offers.

The great outdoors on your doorstep

When we think about the natural world around us we use words like “stunning” and “extraordinary” because that’s what people say when we’re driving them from the airport to town or when we take them for a walk in our reserves, through lush native bush, beside our pristine lakes and rivers, or along our renowned local beaches.
