Welcome to Nelson
Tiny Nelson is the last outpost before the South Australian border – just a general store, a pub and a handful of accommodation places. It’s a popular holiday and fishing spot at the mouth of the Glenelg River, which flows through Lower Glenelg National Park. It's pretty much the halfway mark between Melbourne and Adelaide, and likes to think of itself as the beginning of the Great Ocean Road. Note that Nelson uses South Australia’s 08 telephone area code.
