A quirky museum describing the origins of the wharf, its growth as a transport hub for apples with a massive fruit coolstore. The museum looks at the seafood industry. There is a smokehouse with a cafe worth a look. Enjoy delicious pates on the wharf overlooking the estuary and enjoy the historic photos lining the walls. Nearby Port Mapua Maritime Museum offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of the area. Today the wharf is primarily a visitor destination with galleries, cycle hire operators supporting the Great Taste trail, Hamish’s ice cream parlour and cafes. Mapua, with its proximity to Nelson city is a great place for a day trip.
