About Marlborough NZ
The Marlborough region of New Zealand enjoys high sunshine hours and a temperate climate. Marlborough is also the largest wine growing region in New Zealand, and is known for its sauvignon blanc. With over 40 cellar doors, this is a great location to stop and sample some of the local wines or do a wine tour.
The Port of Picton is situated at the head of Queen Charlotte Sound, one of three sounds which make up the Marlborough Sounds. Queen Charlotte Sound is the busiest of the three sounds, as it is the main thoroughfare for the Interislander Ferries, which provide passenger and car transport to and from Wellington.
Picton is also home to the Coastal Pacific Train Journey, which travels between the delightful port of Picton and Christchurch.
Visitors choose Picton as a base for exploring the Marlborough Sounds. Activities on offer include:
- Swimming with dolphins
- Visiting bird sanctuary islands
- Cruising the sounds
- Hiking the Queen Charlotte Track
If you wish to visit wineries during your stay in Marlborough NZ, choose Blenheim as your base. This small town sits within easy reach of countless vineyards and cellar doors. For an unforgettable experience, book a wine tour and visit top vineyards.
Famous for its Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough also offers a diverse range of varietals that include Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Sample them all while learning about the winemaking process and terroir from your experienced guide.
