This study examines specifically the tourist population which stayed within the boundaries of Nelson city over the Christmas holiday peak of 1969-1970, but where tourist movements are involved discussion will inevitably turn to the Nelson region in general.
Aims: (i) To describe a portion of the New Zealand domestic summer holidaymaking movement by examining Nelson city as a tourist resort. (ii) To establish and assess a simple methodological and descriptive format against which other tourist situations might be compared. (iii) To assess the factors which render Nelson so popular a holiday resort.
