Often crowded, but filled with free information as well as paid services. DOC (Department of Conservation) staff can help you with tramps, fishing and their won info.

I've made good use of the helpfull nature, and knowledgable qualities, of the people of the iSight in Nelson. I find transport can end up costing you time, but with the help of iSite I got it streamlined, and even got some insight into the places that I was going.
