Nelson is a city in New Zealand's South Island.
Hitching within the city
It's easy to hitchhike inside Nelson. Girls will often be picked up by the first car, boys might have to wait a bit longer.
West towards Richmond
When you're heading west, out of the city, it's better to have yourself dropped off a bit further off, in Richmond. Otherwise you might find yourself waiting quite a long time.
Go to Trafalgar St North of the Roundabout to the State Hwy (about 50 meters), where you'll find a car park with plenty of space to stop – a perfect place.
