From watching the earth’s largest mammal - the whales at
Kaikoura, to diving and tramping some of the earth’s most pristine
environments, visiting art galleries or sipping fine wine, Marlborough's
diversity offers it all.
on the ferry from Wellington, through a network of drowned valleys that form
the beautiful Marlborough Sounds, you arrive in the picturesque seaside town
of Picton. Here experiences range from tramping the well-know Queen Charlotte
track to various water sports, including a world-class ship wreck dive.
Half an hour from Picton is Blenheim’s wide alluvial
valley, home to some of Marlborough's award winning wines. The valley is
bordered by the stunning Wither Hills that influences the many local artists.
The opposite range, The Richmond, provides a backdrop for the many wineries in
the region where wine and art tours coupled with bike-trails are popular in
Marlborough’s sunny Mediterranean climate.
Following the rugged volcanic east coast down to Kaikoura,
there is the opportunity to feel awed by close encounters with dolphins,
whales and seals. So from the Sounds coastline, down through New Zealand’s
viticulture capital, Blenheim and on to clear Kaikoura waters, there is a wide
range of activities to tantalise explorers.
