Our Region

Awatere and Pacific Coastline

Discover expansive vineyards nestled within snow-capped mountains and deep blue ocean.

Driving along the golden hills, pink solar salt ponds and vineyards of the Awatere Valley, you'll find snow-capped mountains to one side and the blue Pacific Ocean on the other.

The valley rises to the region's highest peak, Mount Tapuae-o-uenuku, central to Māori legend and the tip of the Southern Alps.

The Awatere is the entrance to the Molesworth Station - New Zealand's largest high-country farm.

Or stop for a wine tasting at the world's most sustainable winery, Yealands Estate, and take in stunning panoramas of vines and ocean along the winery's White Road, winding your way along rows-upon-rows of grape vines.

Mount Tapuae-o-Uenuku

The highest mountain peak outside of the Southern Alps is visible from almost everywhere in Marlborough and central to Maori legend. Some climb it, and everyone admires it.
