    What a walk! Brilliant views and I managed up with a baby in a buggy! Highly recommend doing this is walk in Nelson!

    Lovely platters and wine tasting, worth driving out to sit in the stunning surrounding of the vines.

    Cable Bay Walkway

    If your planning on a day trip to Cable Bay there is a great walk that takes you from the 1st car park right to the top of the hill. Great hike, with some steeper areas at times and worth it for the view at the top!
