In Nelson itself, the carpark on Princess Drive and Paddy's Knob, provide great shooting opportunities of Haulashore Island, Tahuna Beach, The Boulder Bank and Tasman Bay. A 25 minute walk up the hill to the Centre of NZ will give you panoramic views of the town itself from South Nelson to the port and Tasman Haven. Aniseed Valley just south of Hope can provide some interesting shooting as well and you may be lucky enough to catch some dare-devils diving into the river from the footbridge at the public carpark towards the end of Aniseed Dr. Make time to stop at the swingbridge if you're going to do the Buller Gorge.
