Positioned at the top of the South Island with numerous bays, Marlborough is the perfect place to relax and spend some time outdoors.

The region is full of great day walks and multi-day hikes. If you’re close to Blenheim, place the Wither Hills Farm Park walk on your list of things to do. It passes through a working farm and offers impressive views of the Richmond Ranges and Wairau Valley. See Blenheim from another angle too.

If you’re close to Picton, set aside some time for walking the Snout Track. It doesn’t take long to walk, just under an hour, but importantly it ascends to a lookout with views of the spectacular Queen Charlotte Sound.

Another of the best walks in the region is the Waikakaho/Cullen Creek Walkway. Close to Picton, it takes approximately 5 hours to complete and passes through regenerating forest and over watercourses. Navigate ranges and discover what makes this part of the country so special.
