Top of the South Maps is our premiere mapping solution, and it's shared between us and Nelson City Council. It includes a huge amount of information about the region and about specific properties.
Elsewhere on this website, you'll find several other maps with specific sets of data.
Top of the South Maps is a collaboration between Tasman District Council and Nelson City Council.
Information on Top of the South Maps is sourced from the Council's GIS (geographical information systems). It is an approximate representation only and must not be used to determine the location or size of items shown, or to identify legal boundaries.
From the enormous parks we know and love to the little hidden neighbourhood gems, you'll find them all here.
Our region has so many places to have fun! Find sportsgrounds, playgrounds and boat launching ramps on our Recreation map.
Find campgrounds in Tasman, including Council owned campgrounds, privately run campgrounds, DOC campsites, and places where you can freedom camp.
Tasman District Council supports the cultural life of our region by providing libraries, museums, community halls and rec centres, and... okay the public toilets aren't really cultural, but we all appreciate them.
These maps show walk and cycle paths that link the town between streets and via parks, as well as information on the facilities and key destinations.
We encourage all communities to walk or cycle for short trips.
The Top of the South Maps website shows cycling trails in the Nelson Tasman region in a mobile-friendly web app.
Once you have opened the map, select the layers icon and choose recreation. Biking tracks are included in this set.
This map shows you where (and when) you can (and can't) exercise your dog in Tasman.
We have four webcams to let you check conditions around the region. The timelapse feature is pretty cool too.
