Courtesy of Takeabreak, Nelson has a selection of various publicly browser accessible Webcams scattered around the town.
I was reminded of that whilst viewing the amount of live TCYasi footage on Ustream via the different webcams and iPhones over the last few days. To that end, I noticed its been at least 14 months since I updated you with the Nelson webcam details.
Who knows, if you’re looking to buy a home / or an investment property in Nelson, then this way you can get to check out the yearly seasons beforehand.
Above one looks out at the entrance to “The Cut” where 99.9% of all ships come & go to gain entry/exit to Port Nelson (Open Day coming up don’t forget) , The Haven and the marina.
From high on Princes Drive, this webcam looks out over Nelson Airport, the adjacent Nelson Golf Club, and over Blind Channel towards Rabbit Island centre of shot.
One of New Zealands favourite holiday / honeymoon spots, Kaiteriteri.
The Richmond area was in the later half of last decade nominated as one of New Zealand’s fastest growing suburbs/towns. Sponsored by the Tasman District Council this webcam offers up views of Richmond, the Waimea Plains and the estuarine Waimea Inlet to the right of shot.
Our “world famous in NZ” local beach, Tahunanui Beach is where thousands of Kiwis come to spend their summer holidays. There’s a couple here, this one looks over the beach, with the “Back Beach” off to the left, and the next one below…..
Takes a closer look at the area where the Kite Surfing crowds regularly congregate, and a perfect way for someone to check out the available winds before heading down to the beach.
In addition to these, the Tasman District Council also sponsor another 3 webcams. (4 in total)
These are located at ;
1] pointing south (upstream) on the scenic Motueka River at Woodstock.
2] this cam is pointing south looking over Lake Rotoiti towards the Mount Robert Range in the Nelson Lakes National Park.
3] Located on the hills above Richmond, this camera is pointing roughly west across Richmond and the Waimea Plains towards the Mount Arthur Range. (this is the one also mentioned above)
4] Over the Takaka Hill in Golden Bay, this cam is at the southern end of Golden Bay, at Port Tarakohe, looks south west along Pohara Beach.
If you are after quick access to the top mentioned cams, then I have just updated the webcam links on my left hand sidebar.
– not 100% but I think the links above are “kinda live” …..so if the pics you see are black then that’s whats happening in front of that particular web-cam right now…its dark because………well……its night-time…..??
